URI Providence Campus and the Alan Shawn
Feinstein College of Continuing
The University of Rhode Island Feinstein Providence Campus and the Alan Shawn Feinstein College of Continuing Education will play a major role in advancing the Mission of the University of Rhode Island, particularly in achieving the international standing as a leader in urban research and service opportunities in traditional and continuing education, community development, professional development and scholarship. Recognizing the world-wide trend towards urbanization, we will deepen our students’ education through engagement with the rich and diverse environment that a major city provides. Through the University’s Urban Grant designation, the Providence Campus and the Alan Shawn Feinstein College of Continuing Education will benefit the State of Rhode Island and the world.
As an educational force for positive change in an urban environment, through our community of scholars and our multi-disciplinary degree program which involves our students in the tangible problems of our State, we will prepare students to be leaders in an ever-changing world through education, innovation, and collaboration.
We respect the dignity of each individual, valuing the diversity among us. We demand from members of our community an uncompromising integrity and pride, which is evident in our commitment to serve citizens of the State of Rhode Island and the immediate region.
