VACURH was founded in order to create a positive living and learning environment, share experiences and the value of association, facilitate communication and cooperation, and participate with the nation with NACURH (National Association of College and University Residence Halls) and the region with SAACURH (South Atlantic Association of College and University Residence Halls).
The goals of VACURH are the following:
1. To share information relating to the concerns of the schools’ residential governments via active communication, education, and leadership development.
2. To be a body that appreciates and understands true diversity in which individual and group differences are accepted and welcomed.
3. To represent the Commonwealth as a unified body to both SAACURH and NACURH.
4. To represent students’ concerns and provide information on student life to the General Assembly of the Commonwealth.
