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.

Spring Showcase

Spring Showcase was a virtual open house designed to highlight Black/African American and Hispanic/Latinx student experiences here at UVA. This two-day virtual event for admitted students highlighted some of the countless resources that students use to find their place in the diverse UVA community.

Watch session recordings on the Spring Showcase webpage.
