Members of the University Academy of Teaching enrich and enhance the University of Virginia’s academic mission by sharing their teaching expertise and experience with faculty members and/or graduate teaching assistant colleagues. The Academy of Teaching is action-oriented; members are expected to contribute to the Academy’s mission on an on-going basis. Members make a difference to the teaching community through the Academy’s Teaching Partnerships, Academy Associate program, Grants for Learning, the Academy’s annual retreat, service on the Academy’s Executive Board, or by other activities in response to the Academy’s mission.
