Cultural Programming Board

The Cultural Programming Board is charged with the responsibility of supporting the development and implementation of cultural programming at the University of Virginia.

In allocating funding to student-run events and programs, we aim to:

  • Promote learning across the various cultures found within our University community
  • Foster collaboration among students of different backgrounds
