The Project Gabriel final report provides the full recommendations of Project Gabriel, an independent commission of civic and scholarly leaders. It represents a menu of options to be vetted and considered that would fulfill the directives of Virginia’s Enslaved Ancestors College Access Scholarship and Memorial Program (Va. Code § 23.1-615.1), which was passed in 2021 and directs Virginia’s five oldest colleges and universities, including VCU, to research their historic involvement with slavery, to identify enslaved people who were forced to perform labor for those institutions and to provide a tangible benefit for individuals or communities with connections to enslaved labor to break cycles of poverty.
