VCU News' latest student spotlight feature focuses on VCU English major, Glynis Boyd Hughes. Glynis is an undergraduate student at VCU majoring in English and minoring in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies after pursuing a social work career that began in 1997. Her love of language, books, and her belief that the English language fosters communication and understanding are the key reasons she returned to VCU.

For more details on Glynis' story, please see the article in VCU News.

British Virginia is a VCU-hosted series of scholarly editions of documents touching on the colony. These texts range from the 16th and 17th-century literature of English exploration to the 19th-century writing of loyalists and other Virginians who continued to identify with Great Britain. Editions appear principally in digital form, freely downloadable.
