Welcome! At UVA, diversity allows people to come together in mutual respect to share ideas and learn from one another. When that happens, we believe that everyone on campus benefits, and we believe that students leave the University with a richer and expanded view of the world around them.

Diversity means more than just welcoming students with many different backgrounds. It means making sure that all students feel at home at UVA and that they all have the same opportunities once they are enrolled at the University.

As you begin to evaluate colleges, please feel free to contact the Outreach Office. We will be more than happy to answer your questions about UVA and college admission. We know you have many important decisions to make about your future, and want to be as helpful as possible. The best of luck to you this year and we look forward to being in contact with you
