An Important Community Update From President Sullivan

August 12, 2017

To the University Community:

I write to request your assistance in continuing efforts this evening to ensure the safety of our community after today’s senseless violence sparked by the “Unite the Right” rally.

Importantly, our UVA hospital remains open, and health system employees should report for work as scheduled. Academic Division designated employees should also report to work as regularly scheduled.

Important Message from President Sullivan (to the University Community)

August 12, 2017

Dear Members of the University Community:

All of us are profoundly concerned and disturbed by incidents occurring this weekend related to the “Unite the Right” rally in downtown Charlottesville. 

Last night, alt-right protestors carrying torches marched on UVA’s Grounds, attempting to intimidate bystanders and spread their message of intolerance and hate. There were several violent altercations during and after the march, and minor injuries were reported, including one University police officer who was injured while making an arrest.  

Important Message to Parents of Second-Year Students

August 4, 2017

Dear Parents of Second-Year Students:

I write to congratulate you and your student on the beginning of your student's second year at UVA. While the first year in college is often a time of academic and social adjustment, the second year provides new opportunities for intellectual growth, social maturation, and independence. In the second year, UVA students tend to take on increasing leadership roles and greater levels of responsibility. These are natural steps in the process of becoming adults.
