At the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center, we stand with students, faculty and staff in expressing support to the members of UVA’s international community who are so essential to the vitality of our University. An environment that welcomes and supports people of different backgrounds, beliefs, ages, identities, ethnicities and worldviews best accomplishes the goals of a modern public institution of higher education. The Women’s Center works to promote this environment at UVA by actively engaging in discussions about social change and bias, challenging our assumptions, and perhaps most importantly, by supporting the many students whose leadership among their peers is essential to bringing about a truly inclusive University community.
As always, we encourage students in need of support during challenging times to inquire for information about additional support services by phone at 434-982-2361 or in person in Emmet House on McCormick Road. We are open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You can find our front door just off of Bonnycastle Drive. When demand for our services exceeds what we are able to offer, we work to connect students to other resources on Grounds and in the Charlottesville community.
We encourage you to read this statement from President Sullivan on January 29, 2017 and continue to follow news from the President’s office during this time.
