Story by Anthony Buenafe
Ten years ago, I was part of the inaugural Men’s Leadership Project at UVA. I didn’t realize it at the time, but joining MLP was one of the best decisions I made in college.
With quiet power, humility, and tenacity, Jaronda Miller-Bryant has been changing UVA for the better. As the Women’s Center’s Program Director of Global Outreach and Engaged Scholarship, and Associate Program Director of the Young Women Leaders Program, Jaronda helps students look within, reach out, and stand tall. We are lucky and proud to present this glimpse into Jaronda’s life and work. (Trigger warning for LeBron James fans, just FYI.)

It’s never too early to learn about all of the support services and learning opportunities that are available at the Women’s Center.
As part of a “Take Your Daughter to Work Day” celebration, 17 emerging leaders from the Village School gathered at the Center for Global Health to listen to Director of Engaged Scholarship, Jaronda Miller-Bryant, discuss all of the opportunities and services the Women’s Center offers.
