President's Report200809 The artwork accompanying the 200809 President's Report is drawn
 

Summary: President's Report200809
The artwork accompanying the 200809 President's Report is drawn
from various University collections in the Albert and Shirley Small
Special Collections Library, the University of Virginia Art Museum,
Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection, and the Tibetan and Himalayan
Digital Library. Art from around the world was selected to illustrate the
report's section devoted to global programs. One of several priorities
identified by the President's Commission on the Future of the University
in February 2008, the expansion of global programs is well under way.
Curricular and extracurricular programs have been broadened to feature
international themes. Faculty members are working with students to
address issues of global consequence and promote understanding of
the differences among nations and cultures. International scholars and
public figures frequently visit the Grounds to conduct research and share
their expertise with the U.Va. community. Other initiatives, described in
the report, are also being launched. As a result of these efforts to foster
a global education and give students a global perspective, members of
the Academical Village are becoming committed citizens of a village that
extends to the far reaches of the globe.
