Faculty Personnel Actions Requiring Approval by the Board of Visitors

The University’s Board of Visitors (BOV) retains final authority for the personnel actions of all full-time professorial faculty (not lecturers or instructors), including elections (new hires, named professorships, and emeritus status), “off-cycle” salary changes to base salaries (typically for additional responsibilities or competitive retention purposes), promotions in professorial rank, and tenure, and certain executive administrative elections.

3x3 Video Series

3x3 Process

3x3s were created to disrupt monolithic understandings of communities at UVA and to provide online opportunities for learning among instructors.

Professional playwrights worked with members of the UVA community--including staff, students, and faculty-- to generate short, fictionalized monologues. The monologues were then workshopped in collaboration with an actor, who offered their personal insights and artistry to the process.

Institutional Research and Analytics

The Office of Institutional Research and Analytics (IRA) conducts institutional research and supports assessment at the University of Virginia. The office provides the University community with reliable data and analysis needed for decision-makers to support student success and to maintain and improve institutional effectiveness. IRA staff gather, analyze, interpret, and disseminate data, employing the highest professional standards of accuracy, objectivity, and timeliness.
