Toward Jefferson's Third Century


National Committee on University Resources

The National Committee on University Resources comprises more than 400 alumni, parents, and friends from all around the country and parts of Europe, who gave their time, energy, and counsel in support of the Campaign for the University of Virginia. NCOUR members served critical roles as links between the University and the community. Through their work hosting or planning regional campaign events, advising other donors, and encouraging prospective donors, members created local opportunities for the campaign’s success. Their leadership was vital in extending the reach of the campaign and inspiring others to contribute.
