Impact
The University of Virginia Alumni Association seeks to create a strong and collaborative insitution wide alumni engagement program that will enhance the University's ablility to build and maintain ties with an increasingly diverse community of alumni.  Current porgrams, such as reunions, student engagement, the University of Virginia Magazine, alumni legacy admissions, career counseling, and the University of Virginia Fund provide a myriad of opportunities for alumni to stay connected with the University.  The Association facilitates services to over 211,000 alumni.
Needs
