URI Culture and Community

Team members will help you find answers to questions such as: What is it like to work at URI? Where can I find sources of support? Where are the roadblocks? What is diversity like at URI, how is diversity across various groups supported and embraced, and where can I go for more information? How do I efficiently negotiate the various offices and services available? Who are the best resources to access to meet my particular needs? How can I find out more about the local community? Where do I go if I have a complaint or a suggestion about a particular issue? What are your impressions of campus culture and community? What are campus/community cultural experiences I should be aware of? How do I access particular communities of interest?
