Student Life and Leadership Fund
Gifts of all sizes provide a margin of excellence for the Vice President and Chief Student Affairs Officer to fund entrepreneurial initiatives, to respond to unexpected needs, and otherwise to support the U.Va. student experience. Discretionary gifts, for example, have funded requests responding to student safety concerns, provided initial funding to test new programs, and helped individual students with emergency financial needs. Gifts that may be considered relatively small in terms of dollars – several hundred or several thousand dollars – often have a huge impact on student programming and support.
