Virginia Union University Receives a Major Gift to Finance a New Campus Center

Virginia Union University, the historically Black educational institution in Richmond, received a $2 million gift from Robert J. Brown, founder, chair, and CEO of B&C Associates, a consulting, research, and pubic relations firm based in High Point, North Carolina. Brown attended Virginia Union for one year but was forced to leave for family reasons. The $2 million gift is the largest donation, excluding bequests, from a single donor in the university’s history.

The money will be used to fund the construction of the Robert J. Brown Living and Learning Center on the VUU campus. The building will include a 240-bed residence hall and a conference center with a capacity for 450-500 people.
