To get answers, Ryan has launched “Ours to Shape,” a listening initiative soliciting input on three thematic areas that define the University: community, discovery and service. Everyone with an interest in UVA – including students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni, friends, and Charlottesville community members – is invited to participate.
