Public Service Week

Public Service Week logo featuring a heart within a gear design

Public Service Week, March 20–24, 2023, is a time to highlight the contributions of UVA students, staff, and faculty to public service, outreach, community-engaged teaching, public impact research, and the pursuit of careers in public service, all at the heart of the University’s “great and good” mission.

Public service takes many forms across the university. If you or your group engage in public service and want to host an event to share and celebrate your progress, invite new participants, spark discussions, or support day-of service work, please be in touch! Funding is available for student-led events. 

Please contact Ellen Blackmon in the Office for Academic Outreach for more information on how to become a part of this event, or fill out an Event Submission Form
