UVA Darden welcomed students, lifelong learners, faculty and staff back to its Grounds — in both Charlottesville and at UVA Darden DC Metro in Rosslyn, Virginia — in August when all degree programs started as planned. For non-degree Executive Education and Lifelong Learning programs, Darden is pleased to present an expanded virtual portfolio, as well as in-person programs.
Health and safety are top priorities this academic year. This website provides essential information for everyone to do their part to keep each other safe. The School is adapting operations for this new environment in line with industry best practices, and Darden is committed to providing a culture of mutual care and concern.
Download the Safe Return to Darden Grounds Guide to have a quick and helpful resource explaining the policies and guidelines the Darden community can follow during the pandemic to keep each other healthy and safe while on Grounds in Charlottesville and Rosslyn.
On this website, you will find the latest plans, information and resources to ensure a safe return to Grounds. Please check this site regularly, as information may change based on the spread of the virus, the advice of public health experts or an order by the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Visit the UVA COVID Tracker to track public health information and key metrics about the virus. This tracker is updated daily and is intended to provide students, staff, faculty, parents and community with up to date information from the University of Virginia.
Our top priority is to keep our community safe while upholding our mission and values.
