The start of a new Academic Year is both challenging and exciting, and I look forward to welcoming you to the RIVCAS community. As you prepare to move in and connect with friends, I write to update you about the Student Affairs Unit, hereafter, SAU.
As I welcome you on campus let me add that RIVCAS has zero tolerance for cultism, exam malpractice, sexual harassment and other clandestine activities, which are capable of debasing and preventing you from achieving your academic success.

Our mission is to support, encourage, and create a living-learning community where you thrive, belong and engage others globally. I urge to work hard because that is the only way to remain on top
