One of the ways we work throughout the year to make UVA an inspiring environment for students, faculty and staff is to celebrate the University’s most trailblazing women. Every year the Women’s Center gives three signature awards. In a similar vein, we hold the Beverly Cobble Rodriguez Lectureship to broaden students’ exposure to challenging global issues and people who are having a positive impact.

On these pages, you can learn more about each of these traditions and the world-changing women they celebrate.
