Diversity & Inclusion

Over its first two hundred years, the University of Virginia has been at the forefront of producing global citizen leaders, groundbreaking research and scholarship, and world-class patient care. As the University enters its third century, we continuously seek to define and redefine ourselves, motivated by our shared passion for discovery, innovation, community, service, and social justice. One of the University’s top priorities is to create a living, learning, and work environment that supports—and challenges—our academic community. To achieve its mission, the University must be a place in which all faculty, students, and staff are active participants in its work, where those groups historically excluded from participation in University life are present in numbers that prevent isolation of the spirit and of the mind, and where each individual is conscious of how they contribute to the creation and dissemination of knowledge that enhances the well-being of our community, our state, our nation, and the world.

As part of the University’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, the schools are engaged in targeted diversity programming as well as planning for the next several years. These plans and programming will vary according to the individual missions of the schools and units, and will reflect the unique circumstances experienced in various fields.
