VCU Alumni announces regional chapter name changes to reflect broader inclusive commitment
The VCU Alumni RVA GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade) and DMV GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade) chapters have changed their names to Richmond Chapter and DMV Chapter, respectively. The name changes reflect VCU Alumni’s broader commitment to be more inclusive of all alumni in geographical regions and to shape the future of alumni engagement.
“The new chapter names allow us to emphasize that all graduates from VCU are welcome in the Richmond and DMV geographic alumni chapters, with the goal of engaging alumni across all age groups and improving the quality of programming,” says Joshua Hiscock, associate vice president for alumni relations. “As a university that provides a climate of inclusion, we are committed to delivering an inclusive alumni experience that will help connect all alumni no matter when they graduated.”
The VCU Alumni Richmond and DMV chapters bring alumni together to provide quality local programs and events, such as industry networking, mentorship and community service activities. The Richmond Chapter serves more than 70,000 alumni in the metro Richmond, Virginia, area, and the DMV Chapter serves more than 30,000 alumni in the Washington D.C., Northern Virginia and Maryland area.
