Universitas 21

U21 is an international network of 21 leading research-intensive universities in 13 countries. The network's purpose is to facilitate collaboration and cooperation between the member universities and to create opportunities for them on a scale that none of them would be able to achieve operating independently or through traditional bilateral alliances. The University of Virginia has been a member of the U21 consortium since May 2001. U.Va. has in place bilateral student exchange agreements with most of the U21 member institutions and is very active in numerous other network initiatives. Learn More.
