A Message from Vice President for Student Affairs

Dr. Thomas R. Dougan


Welcome to the Student Affairs Division at The University of Rhode Island.  Our staff is dedicated to assisting students and providing support for their academic and co-curricular success.  Student Affairs staff work with numerous student organizations to provide services that meet the interests of our diverse student body.

I hope that you will take full advantage of the Student Affairs services that we offer at URI as are listed in various locations on our web site.  It is my hope that our programs, services, and staff will assist you in making a smooth transition to URI, feeling connected, and becoming an involved member of the URI community.

I want to give a special welcome to our first year students.  We encourage you to join at least one of our over 100 student organizations.  We provide assistance with any problem that may come your way, so please do not hesitate to come and see us.  I hope that your URI experience is one that you will cherish for years to come.

Wishing you great success at URI,

Thomas R. Dougan, Ph.D.

Vice President for Student Affairs
