UVA in the world
Back in Business

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.


" I took trains across the UK, rode buses, and traversed the Underground, I cultivated independence, self-confidence, directional awareness, and navigating skills I didn’t realize I had. Adapting to a new culture and realizing the differences between societies and cultures was fascinating. I don’t think I can comprehend or communicate how much traveling abroad has enriched me socially, mentally, and in other ways.

“The CGII funds will be used for traveling to Philippines to conduct my ethnographic research to learn more about Philippine nursing and understand the contemporary and connect contemporary with historical aspects."

“I’ve often wondered how people in Europe are able to travel to countries that speak a different language but I understand it. Even though you may not speak the language, you can still communicate with people…I learned to not be afraid  when visiting foreign countries.”
