Yesterday at noon, the University of Richmond launched its first-ever giving day, UR Here. Spiders everywhere are coming together for 36 hours to give back to the University and we at the Jepson School of Leadership Studies are encouraging our Jepson family to Give to Jepson!


Our students, faculty, staff, and more than 1,400 alumni are the reason Jepson is such a special place. Our students and alumni know it. We know it. And we are in the midst of a Profile-Raising Initiative campaign to tell the world about it. We are more than halfway to our marketing campaign goal of $250,000. In collaboration with our UR colleagues and the Jepson School’s Executive Board of Advisors, we will help potential employers better understand the skills and qualities of our Jepson graduates.

I hope you will consider a gift to Jepson between now and midnight. Thank you for your support!
