Make It Real Madagascar

Make it real.

Learning isn’t just the time you’ve spent sitting at a desk, right?

It’s what happens in every place you’re driven to explore and every experience that informs your search. It’s what happens when you take knowledge and discoveries and experiences and put them to use — to further our understanding of the world, to improve communities, to enhance lives — because that’s what it means to make it real.

When you read through these stories of students, faculty, staff and alumni doing just that, you begin to see that what we do at VCU doesn’t happen just in a classroom or a lab or a studio, and it doesn’t happen just in the city we call home.

What we do — what we research, what we teach, what we create — happens everywhere.
