RIC has a diverse, multi-ethnic student community with 21% of undergraduate and 10% of graduate students identifying themselves as racial/ethnic minorities and a small but growing international population. Students here are members of a caring community that respects diversity and values academic excellence informed by cultural inquiry, civic engagement, and co-curricular activity. Our students value RIC's small class size with an average of 20 students.

Located on a 180-acre campus in Providence, Rhode Island, Rhode Island College (RIC) is a leading, comprehensive public college with over 9,000 students. Founded in 1854, the college is the first public institution of higher education in Rhode Island.
