2007-08 Academic Community Engagement Award Faculty Recipients

Two UVa academic community engagement courses received support during the pilot phase of this new funding opportunity. Their success in connecting academic life to public service laid the groundwork for the new ACES initiative:

  • ecoMOD
    The ecoMOD project is embedded in the curriculum of the Architecture School and the School of Engineering and Applied Science and is intended to create well-built homes that cost less to live in, minimize damage to the environment and appreciate over time. Learn More:

  • The Young Women Leaders Program
    The Young Women Leaders Program (YWLP) is a psychoeducational mentoring program that empowers at-risk middle school girls to be leaders by combining the benefits of one-on-one mentoring with targeted group activities for a year.  YWLP is a research-based program that has been implemented at several other colleges and universities and been shown to positively affect both the middle school girls’ and the college women’s sense of self.
