Our Spider community’s well-being is taken seriously — hello, brand new wellness center — and it’s just one of the many reasons we love our university. Another step in our commitment to campus health is the launch of substance abuse and collegiate recovery programming, supported by a new $50,000 grant from Virginia’s Department of Behavioral Health.

“The money will start a recovery program on our campus … so that we can be more inclusive and mindful for those people who might be in recovery or starting the recovery process, so that they can continue their education,” said Slade Gormus, a registered nurse at UR and founder of the UR Wellness Bandits, in a Collegian article.

We are proud to build upon our inspiring community for students who may need that extra support.
