As part of our mission, the DSA works to enhance the student experience through sponsorship of student leadership programs and cultural and social activities.
The DSA is committed to strengthening community cohesiveness, as well as working to further strengthen our relationship with alumni, faculty and administration, the Charlottesville community, the University of Virginia and local businesses.
With approximately 50 student-run cultural, professional and social organizations, the DSA provides a strategic direction for student leadership and activities. The DSA empowers students and represents student opinion through our close relationship with the faculty, staff and administration.
The DSA continually evaluates activities that affect our community, experiences and the Darden brand. By working with student leaders, faculty, staff and administrators, the DSA aims to continuously improve the experience for current and future students as well as the Darden brand and image for alumni and friends of Darden.
