Transcript of 2 Campuses, 1 Mission
"Some call it an urban campus,
we call it an urban canvas"
In the heart of Virginia's capital city, VCU holds 143 acres in downtown Richmond, Va.
* First research university in the nation to have a program in homeland security and emergency preparedness.
*First university in Virginia to offer an undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering.
*First university in the nation to offer a master’s degree in product innovation.
*First university in the country to offer a Master of Science in Nurse Anesthesia in 1979.
*The yearlong novel workshop offered by our creative writing master’s program was the first of its kind in the nation — and still one of very few in the country.
And a word from our President...
"Diversity is absolutely essential at
a research university, just as it is in life. It is an indispensable part of the learning process. It shapes what we learn and how we learn it,
how we solve problems,
how we interact with one another
and how we think about ourselves
and each other".

VCU's Quest for Distinction
There are so many things I could cover when presenting why VCU is amazing. The diverse culture, top- tier academic programs, combined with the school spirit, makes us a unified university. I could present about our Basketball team, which made it to the Final Four in 2011, or how we are a sustainable campus, or how we have programs to support the success of both students, faculty, and alumni, but I'm going to present how VCU makes it real in the community.
On October 25, 2013,
the School of Mass Communications will head to Philly to receive one of 32 CEPR certification from the PRSA international
CENTER FOR MEDIA + Health
In line with the University's Quest for Distinction, professors from the School of Mass Communication, School of Medicine, and School of Nursing have collaborated to open a center that will improve human health by improving access to health information among vulnerable populations and by improving patient communication.
A glimpse into VCU...
The center will hopefully develop a research agenda for health communications at VCU.
The center is currently working on health communications MOOC classes, which are Massive Open Online Courses, available to the community as well as students for free.
Initial focuses of the center are built upon existing collaborations, including substance abuse issues, youth and tobacco issues, children, youth and young adults’ health issues, and hospital communications.
Pillars of M + H
PILLAR 1: Meditrina Lab is a health media research lab
This is where media psychology experiments, web panel surveys, media content analyses, and target focus groups are conducted. The lab addresses a need for scientifically sophisticated, timely data that are relevant to health communication, media, and healthcare professionals at VCU and in the greater metropolitan area of Richmond.
PILLAR 2: The Health Communication Knowledge Dissemination Program
The goal of this program is to explore the impact of social and digital media on health communication, both between practitioner and patient, and health care organization and the greater public.
