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
  • Increase the presence and impact of underrepresented cultural perspectives
  • Stimulate creative thinking about culture, inclusiveness and community



Cultural Programming Board funds for the 2019-20 academic year have been exhausted.  Additional funding sources can be found here
