Rhode Island College has always embraced and demonstrated an unwavering commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and opportunity. We recognize that in order to truly uphold these principles, we must take action. 

We must make bold investments and provide distinctive opportunities for students pursuing higher education and seeking economic prosperity, particularly those from historically underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds.  

As a first-choice institution for students of color, particularly our growing LatinX population, we must invest in educational experiences that expand our students’ knowledge of the history, culture and contributions of those whose diverse stories are woven into the fabric of our state, our nation and our world. Simultaneously we must retain and recruit faculty that reflect the diversity of our student body while also providing the tools and competencies needed to actively engage students of all backgrounds through face-to-face or online instruction. 

With your help, we can put our values into action, which is why we’re thrilled to be launching a new fundraising campaign called The Future is BOLD. The campaign will focus on supporting four areas of need:  

- Scholarship support for underrepresented students across all majors,  

- Faculty grants supporting diversity training and professional development,  

- Direct investments to enhance Black studies and humanities programs, and  

- Emergency Response Funding in the form of financial aid supporting students' basic needs such as food and housing insecurities.   

You can choose to support one or more of these four critical priorities at Rhode Island College through this important new campaign. Your gift today will make a difference for Rhode Island College students and faculty.
