The University of Rhode Island has the intimate feel of a smaller university, but our thinking—and our research, innovations, and cross-discipline collaboration—is very big. At URI you’ll find some of today’s leading innovators, discoverers, and creative problem solvers offering a constant flow of big ideas to address global issues. From new technologies for identifying and treating killer diseases, to the latest solutions for environmental challenges, to forensic sciences that protect against global and cyber terrorism, and more, the University of Rhode Island is prepared to help.
In addition to traditional major degree programs, unique interdisciplinary programs blending such disciplines as languages with textiles, engineering with business, pharmaceuticals with engineering, and archaeology with marine sciences engage URI’s 13,000 undergraduates and 3,000 graduate students in real-life, problem-solving initiatives. They work side by side with approximately 600 full-time tenure-track teaching faculty, as well as with dedicated lecturers, researchers, and adjunct faculty. Our students come from most states and dozens of countries, and our alumni can be found in more than 80 countries around the globe.
