Grant Golden Educational Journey 

July 1, 2019, Richmond, Virginia, Leadership, social justice and sport are the common themes that five University of Richmond student-athletes will explore in an educational and cultural journey to Cuba as part of the Department of Athletics' Global Leadership Immersion and International Education's EnCompass Program.

Junior men's basketball student-athlete Grant Golden, "This is a really good opportunity and life experience that a lot of people don't get the chance to do," Golden said. "I am excited to go down there, see another culture and experience a different perspective. With all the time that we spend in the gym and on the court, the fact that we (student-athletes) can still do something like this in a condensed amount of time and have this experience, is really awesome for us and we are grateful to the University of Richmond."
