Batten Hour: Being a Good Neighbor in Charlottesville

At the Batten School, we are committed to working collaboratively, and with humility, with local stakeholders to make our Charlottesville neighborhoods and institutions more resilient, healthy and effective. Through various local initiatives, our faculty work side-by-side with our neighbors to uphold the University’s strategic investment in the Charlottesville region, helping to shape a city that is among the best and most equitable places to live, work and study.

Please join us for a panel discussion about the important work Batten faculty do to strengthen our relationship within the Charlottesville community. UVA President Jim Ryan will provide opening remarks and Dean Ian Solomon will moderate a panel of Batten faculty and Charlottesville community leaders.

Panelists are as follows:
