Brie Gertler is Vice Provost for Academic Affairs and Commonwealth Professor of Philosophy.  The vice provost for academic affairs serves as a second-in-command for the provost and provides leadership and oversight of the core academic functions of the University.


The Generative AI Task Force for Teaching and Learning is charged with facilitating conversations among faculty and students about the role of generative AI in teaching and learning. The task force is also reviewing a broad range of sources to identify opportunities and challenges posed by generative AI for teaching and learning, and studying how our peer institutions are responding to the emergence of this technology. This work will culminate in a set of recommendations about how UVA can leverage the opportunities and manage the challenges of this technology in the near term.

Course enrichment grants

In an effort to encourage long-term reciprocal partnerships between UVA faculty, students, and community partners, the RPE program is offering $2,000 grants to support courses that include a strong element of community engagement. Faculty members are encouraged to apply for funding to support courses that deploy place-based and community-based learning.
