The Cristo Rey Network announced the University of Richmond as the organization's newest University Partner.
"The University is thrilled to partner with the Cristo Rey Network, and particularly to celebrate the opening of the newest Cristo Rey school here in Richmond," said Stephanie Dupaul, Vice President for Enrollment Management. "Cristo Rey students who have attended the University of Richmond in the past have been well prepared for the rigor and close engagement found in our classes, bringing a strong work ethic developed through Cristo Rey's unique work model, and have contributed in many ways to the University community. We are eager to welcome more Cristo Rey graduates to Richmond!"
The University is one of only a handful of institutions able to meet the full demonstrated financial need of all undergraduates while also being need blind in the admission of U.S. Citizens and U.S. Permanent Residents.
"The University of Richmond's record of investing in students financially, academically, and socio-emotionally aligns well with our mission to seeing all Cristo Rey Network graduates to and through college," said Stephanie Arias, Director of College Initiatives. "With the institution's commitment to meeting 100% of students' demonstrated financial need, we are confident we will see students from across our 35 schools empowered by our newest partner."
