Opportunities at UVa for Tibetans and Tibetan Communities


The University of Virginia is committed to ensuring its academic programs also offer benefits to Tibetan communities and individuals. We support exchange programs for Tibetans to visit the US, work together with community service organizations, and actively support digital initiatives benefiting Tibetans. Many UVa programs are designed to increase knowledge of Tibetan culture, land, and heritage, as well as to contribute toward socially engaged programs of benefit to local Tibetan communities. In addition, the Tibet Center aims to create multiple programs whereby Tibetans themselves can have direct access to and participate in the creation of libraries and other resources focused on Tibetan and Himalayan cultures. We welcome Tibetans to contact us as to how we can help, and interests they have in building a relationship with UVa.
