Welcome to UVA Global Affairs second Annual Impact Report! UVA Global was proud this year to stage a dramatic revival of our global engagement across the board as soon as it became safe to do so. From restarting flagship study abroad programs, to offering non-traditional global engagement and substantially expanding the scope of globally themed programming on Grounds, UVA Global made great strides this year. None of which would be possible without the enormous generosity of our community of donors.
Join us for a conversation with introductions by UVA President Jim Ryan. The discussion is led by Vice Provost for Global Affairs Steve Mull with Malcolm Turnbull, former Prime Minister of Australia and Chair of the International Advisory Council of the Center for Asia-Pacific Resilience and Innovation (CAPRI), and Lucy Turnbull, former Lord Mayor of Sydney, who will discuss characteristics of effective leadership from the local to the global level.
Date/Time: Apr 19, 2:00-3:15 pm
Location: Rotunda, Dome Room
