Welcome back to the Virginia Commonwealth University Honors College!

For some of you, it will be a welcome return to campus, while for others it will be your first time on our campus—but either way, I speak for everyone in the Honors College when I say that we are thrilled to have you on campus and as part of our Honors community.

We know that the past year and a half has been challenging, and that there will be obstacles for the coming year, but the connections that you will forge with your peers and the Honors faculty and staff will provide you with the support that you need to thrive as you move forward. 

After working remotely for my first year as Dean of the Honors College, I’m excited to be on campus myself and am looking forward to learning more about your personal journeys to Richmond and hopes for the future. If you have any questions or if I can do anything to help as the year progresses, please don’t hesitate to contact me or any of my colleagues in the Honors College.

Welcome (back) to VCU!

-Dean Scott Breuninger, Ph.D.
