Nurturing Sustainable, Relationship-Rich Academic Environments
UVA’s Center for Teaching Excellence with support from and in collaboration with various campus leaders proposes to accomplish three interrelated objectives:
1) nurture and align budding school and university-wide initiatives aimed at engendering meaningful student-faculty relationships and support their evolution and expansion
2) build our faculty’s capacity to serve as emotionally supportive mentors to students and
3) create the institutional culture and structures needed to better support the type of life-transformative education that this grant initiative seeks to encourage.
