We help people.

Because all children deserve a well-rounded education. And because a changed economy has left many Rhode Islanders searching for new ways to support themselves and their families.

We help kids fall in love with learning. And we help people gain the skills they need to explore new options in training, employment, and careers. UWRI also helps people change their futures by providing the tools to better manage finances and to save more of the money they earn.
