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.

Through our Young Women Leaders Program and Men's Leadership Project, we give students the chance to give back to the community they call home during their years at UVA. These community-based mentoring programs pair undergraduate men and women with middle schoolers from the Charlottesville area. Pairing course work with group meetings, as well as one-on-one activities with their littles, our Big Brothers and Big Sisters grow as leaders while helping their littles realize their own leadership potential.
