The mission of the Darden Jewish Student Association (DJSA) is to further awareness of Jewish Culture, tradition and history within the Darden community through educational and social avenues. The DJSA cultivates and supports a friendly community for students to congregate, converse and network. As a social organization, membership is open to all students, not just those who practice a religious faith. Social activities are planned for both club members and Darden as a whole.
Members of DJSA, along with leaders from other faith-based clubs recently hosted a webinar where they shared their experiences at Darden and what their clubs bring to the Darden community.
Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.
We welcome prospective students to reach out to members of our leadership team to learn more about the Darden Jewish Student Association.
