An innovative resource for engaging and educating, UR Downtown enables all academic departments, offices, and programs of the University of Richmond to connect with the Greater Richmond community.
UR Downtown is home to three programs of the University’s Bonner Center for Civic Engagement, School of Law, and School of Professional & Continuing Studies:
- The Richmond Families Initiative (RFI), an issue-based program focused on children and families, connects UR and community resources in order to build our region’s capacity to support families and children.
- The Harry L. Carrico Center for Pro Bono Service connects the skills and talents of law students with the Greater Richmond community and a network of regional and national pro bono programs.
- Partners in the Arts (PIA) is an educational program that serves K–12 teachers in the Richmond area by providing arts integration training and by funding projects that use the arts to teach across the K–12 curriculum.
In addition to housing these programs, UR Downtown offers the University and the community a state-of-the-art, multipurpose facility conveniently located in the heart of the city.
