Every community has a story, and within that story are things that matter to everyone who lives there. As part of the larger Richmond community, MWGS is a part of its story – a story that we can help shape by engaging in some of the most important matters of our region. Students, alumni and faculty have a long tradition of giving back – be it at a local, regional, national, or international level. Find what matters to you and to your community – seek opportunities to participate, contribute, and lead through service to others. It’s your time to write a chapter in the story of your community.
