Please explore the provost's office Academic Outreach website for an overview of strategic areas for academic outreach and related public-facing programs.

Engaged UVA is a website that identifies current and ongoing community-based initiatives, and allows users to search for associated faculty, courses, projects, and community partners. As such, it is the front door to community partnerships at UVA, designed to connect faculty, students, and communities to mutually beneficial research and teaching programs.

The Connecting Lives initiative, offered by the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE), supports faculty in developing and broadening their expertise in community-engaged teaching.

Leadership in Academic Matters (LAM) is a faculty development opportunity focused on supporting, inspiring, and rewarding those who, in these myriad roles, have demonstrated leadership characteristics and future potential. LAM provides participants with concrete resources, access to expertise and experiential learning opportunities focused on a variety of topics including managing change, building and managing teams, difficult conversations, developing successful networks, and finding life balance in a dynamic and growing career. Weekly half-day sessions are conducted over the course of several months, facilitated by leading experts in academic leadership.

Human Resources Education and Training provides a series of integrated programs and services designed to prepare, equip, and support people to succeed in fulfilling their leadership roles. They offer training to empower stronger leaders and teams, promote active self-discovery and behavior change, and foster collaborative and trusting relationships.
