    Iâ??ve had mostly positive experiences with all of the faculty members with whom I have interacted, but Iâ??ve definitely learned that I need to be my own advocate for my success. As with any other school, you get what you put into it. VCU seems to try to work towards bettering its diverse environment, but the students definitely must hold the school accountable regarding their dedication to diversity agenda.
