Why UR?

“I appreciate that, top to bottom, people who work here genuinely care about this place and about one another. I also have found the benefits to far outstrip what is available at most higher education institutions, which is awesome.”

URHR Kudos

  • Sarah Andress

    "We were working with a student with an immediate need of assistance and reached out to Sarah Andress for help. Sarah took ownership of the problem, initiated the solution, and navigated it through the required processes. Problem solved."

  • Vessela Stefanova

    "Thanks SO much to Vessela who responded immediately when I reached out to her recently about not having hot water in our two kitchens in Richmond Hall. UR's Facilities Department is always so responsive. We are MOST appreciative for all their efforts and expertise every day!!"
