Academic Outreach

Academic Outreach connects UVA...
with the community and the world through public-facing programming that educates and engages individuals and enriches our society. A respectful exchange of views, data, and information is crucial to our work. Academic Outreach augments UVA’s mission to graduate ethically-minded leaders by amplifying programs that clearly serve the public, and by supporting research that leads the Commonwealth, the nation, and the world toward a better future.
