Grow our vigorous partnerships across Grounds!

Donate NowThrough our partners, we extend our resources and opportunities to many who we could never reach alone.

With our partners, we respond to the University community’s needs, forging dynamic solutions from distinct energy and expertise.

Through partnerships with the Curry School and the Women, Gender and Sexuality program, we pair classroom learning and real world work for our big sisters and brothers, mentoring group facilitators and the interns working in all of our social justice outreach programs. Our Survivor Support Network is made up of UVA faculty and staff from across the University who train with us to help students or colleagues who have experienced sexual assault.

The UVA tradition of student leadership brings abundant opportunities for us to collaborate with CIOs. We find common ground with students working to promote their peers’ safety and well-being, organizations advocating for gender equity, and those supporting racial and ethnic minority students.

From Athletics to IM-Rec Sports and from Counseling & Psychological Services to Orientation & New Student Programs, we are proud to be part of a web of services and support dedicated to ongoing improvement of the student experience at UVA.

From the Bama Works Fund to the Seven Society and from Jefferson Public Citizens to UVA Clubs around the country, our resources and opportunities for students are sustained and expanded by generous alumni and philanthropic organizations. With their support, we can help students make the most of their education. Students, like those featured in our alumni spotlights, leave UVA for the wider world with sharper skills and a deeper commitment to doing their part to make the world a better place.

Join our thriving network of students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends committed to a just and equitable UVA – an unrivaled place to work and learn.
