This is a seminal moment. As we enter the University of Virginia’s next century, we recognize that its future is ours to shape. To guide this next chapter, we invite you to share your vision for UVA’s future.
How can we strengthen our community? How can we support discoveries? How can we better serve the commonwealth – and the world? Answering these questions is the first step in shaping our future.
Ours to Shape will include a number of live events designed to solicit feedback and facilitate conversation, both on Grounds and beyond. This page will be updated as the schedule is built. Stay up to date on Ours to Shape events and related stories on the University calendar, UVA Today and University's social media channels.
