'Round Robins

The Richmond web reaches far. While we can't be at the place many of us have come to call home, we are still connected by our Spider spirit. As Dean Quiñones said, "Our closest held value at the Robins School is being student-centered. This current situation will challenge our ingenuity, adaptability, and cooperative spirit as we seek to live out this value in new ways."

In light of this new situation, the Robins School hopes to provide resources and information to help you navigate these uncharted waters. Revisit this page for weekly updates.

Robins School Executives in Residence remain available for one-on-one sessions by phone, email, or Zoom. These super mentors have decades of experience and are ready to provide advice, assistance, and partnership during this time. Find their contact information here and reach out today.

"When I reached out to one of our Executives in Residence, I knew it could help my career’s trajectory, but I did not expect to form a genuine mentor relationship. After just two meetings with Steve Aronson, I felt comfortable enough to stray from conversations about my career and speak with him casually about my day-to-day life. Steve has guided me tremendously, especially this spring, as I prepare for my summer internship." -Michael Procaccino, '21
