The University of Virginia is well known for its tradition of student leadership. At the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center, we consistently see students giving their time and talents to a wide variety of ongoing civic engagements. UVA students’ dedication to service is a source of inspiration to us and to our colleagues on the faculty and staff across Grounds. We are also keenly aware that students, as well as faculty and staff, can easily find themselves swept up in their civic engagements to a surprising degree, especially when news of great significance comes unexpectedly.

A message from Women's Center Director, Abby Palko

In my four months as Director of the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center, I have come to understand that leadership is the culmination of a thousand small and large actions undertaken with the best interests of the group as the guiding principle. It is digging into the weeds of fire code regulations and seeing a decade-long picture of services provided in a single frame.  It is making informed decisions that balance competing needs and desires.
