UVA Education Benefits Program | https://hr.virginia.edu/career-development/education-benefits
UVA encourages employees to continue their education. The University’s Cornerstone Plan guides us to “invest in employees to foster a culture of excellence and achievement." The Education Benefit Program puts that belief into practice to help you reach your educational and professional goals. As a Medical Center team member, you can earn a degree, take a review course for professional certification, or earn a professional certification from an accredited institution. As an Academic Division employee, you can earn a degree or professional certificate from an accredited institution, take continuing education courses, and attend a conference related to your work. The Education Benefit enables you to do these things by providing financial support.
Please note that Medical Center and Academic division employees have different educational benefits. FAQ’s and job aids on how to apply for both divisions are attached.
UVA Advancement is actively recruiting for a Director of Development for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
