You’re a Spider, so you dream big. You don’t want to land just any job after UR, but a purposeful career you’re passionate about.

At A&S NEXT, a career program specifically for A&S students, we aim to give you the tools to understand your personal strengths and how you can translate your Richmond education into a career that you love. Placed in the heart of the city of Richmond, you’ll meet and work alongside alumni and faculty to gain hands-on experience while leveraging your A&S education to tackle contemporary issues.

As an A&S NEXT participant, you’ll choose a topic area you’re interested in and spend the day in a small group teasing apart the issue, proposing solutions, and drawing on your personal strengths and those of your teammates. Alumni and faculty who have expertise in the chosen area will advise your group, giving you insight into their careers and research. At the end of the day, you’ll reflect on the skills you used and identify how the experience of utilizing a variety of competencies can be translated into future career endeavors. You’ll also have the opportunity to network and make professional connections with alumni that may benefit you as you plan for life after UR.

A&S NEXT kicks off on Friday, March 2 at 3 pm with a keynote speaker and dinner, followed by a bus tour of Richmond that ends at the Richmond Marriott, where participants will spend the night.

A&S NEXT continues from 8 am to 4 pm on Saturday, March 3 at the Marriott with opening remarks from Dean Patrice Rankine and Delegate Schuyler VanValkenberg, ’04; small group work on case studies advised by faculty and alumni; presentations of each group’s work; reflections on the day; and closing remarks from Provost Jeffrey Legro. Following closing remarks, students will return to campus.

A&S NEXT is open to all A&S students, regardless of year and major, but space is limited. Learn more at, and register through SpiderConnect.
