Rhode Island College's mission is to offer accessible higher education of the finest quality to traditional and non-traditional students. Students here are members of a caring community that respects diversity and values academic excellence informed by cultural inquiry and civic engagement.
Rhode Island College offers a rich and rigorous environment for each student to engage in learning -- in and out of the classroom. We believe that your educational experience should have many dimensions. You will experience growth in skills and factual knowledge, in self-confidence and self-esteem, in your ability to imagine and create, and in your awareness of others in this increasingly diverse community. We hope that you will make a commitment to grow in each of these dimensions because we know your satisfaction with your educational experience will be directly related to such a commitment.
