Faculty & Research

Collaborative Catalysts

We know that effective solutions emerge when faculty and scholars collaborate across disciplines. As a university-wide asset, we facilitate cross-disciplinary research, teaching and training, and create meaningful exchanges throughout UVA and beyond. Our projects, research and partnerships are suited to reach across Grounds, accelerating collaborative efforts. The future is, in fact, a collaborative endeavor.

Shaping the Future

We consider not only academic rigor, but real-world experience, political impact, teaching and mentoring when recruiting faculty. Our faculty has expanded to more than 70 of the nation's best scholar-practitioners in disciplines including political science, psychology, policy history, economics and law. Their areas of focus reflect the drive and research of some of the sharpest minds at work in policy today.

The complex issues of our time demand that we step into innovative, collaborative, cross-sector relationships capable of mobilizing innovation. Our centers, labs and researchers are an essential point of convergence for interdisciplinary collaboration at UVA and bring our groundbreaking research and initiatives further out into the world.
