About the University of Rhode Island
The University of Rhode Island has grown from an agricultural school and agricultural experiment station to the community-committed university it is today—a place where ideas unleash potential and diversity incubates creativity.
Research, scholarship and creative work are at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to enriching the lives of students by providing the distinctive educational opportunities of a major research university. Students, faculty, staff and alumni are united in one common purpose: to learn and lead together.
