Success Seminar Series

The safety and health of our students and partners are of the utmost importance. As VCU monitors the spread of COVID-19 across the region, we have updated the format of our programming efforts. Given the most recent updates, this session will be provided via Zoom until further notice. To attend this session, please RSVP so that we are able to provide you with the necessary meeting details. 


The Success Seminar Series is an interdisciplinary professional development and wellness series in the form of “lunch and learns.” Lunch is provided for those who RSVP but walk-ins are welcome.  All sessions are recorded and available on our YouTube channel.
