Academic Outreach

Academic Outreach fosters a culture of
public mindedness by supporting initiatives, courses, and centers that collaborate with community partners, governments, and schools across Charlottesville, the Commonwealth, and beyond. Our work focuses on six strategic areas: community partnerships, civic engagement, K12 education across Virginia, public interest technology, thriving communities, and public programs.
