Let’s consider what could be

We celebrate and amplify the significant and unique contributions of each and every member of the URI community.

URI is deeply committed to cultivating an academic, working, and living environment that promotes inclusive excellence. We believe that we have much to learn from one another and we are dedicated to providing the means to making that happen through policy-making, programming, critical conversations, thoughtful action, and collaboration between administration, faculty, staff, and students.

Community, Equity and Diversity (CED) is here to support you and to connect you with the people and resources to be successful at URI.

We’re glad you’re here.
