University’s Engineering School Joins Statewide Partnership for Nanotechnology, Wins NSF Grant

AN ALLY IN the newly formed Virginia Partnership for Nanotechnology Education and Workforce Development, the University of Virginia’s School of Engineering and Applied Science was recently awarded a “Partnerships for Innovation” grant from the National Science Foundation. The award — $600,000 over two years — will enable the Partnership to offer distance-learning graduate courses and certificate programs to students across Virginia. “By connecting students and faculty statewide, allowing students to benefit from the knowledge of faculty who specialize in many of the different aspects of nanotechnology, we’re creating a great, comprehensive graduate experience,” said James Groves (left), assistant dean for research and outreach at the engineering school.

U.Va. Children’s Hospital and NBC 29 Raise over $1.8M During Telethon

The numbers showed how much the people of Central Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley care about the University of Virginia Children’s Hospital. At the conclusion of this past weekend’s telethon held at the U.Va. Health System, $1,820,583 had been raised, surpassing last year’s total of $1.7 million. These funds will go towards research and other needs of children and families cared for by U.Va. Children’s Hospital. Funds from past telethons have made possible the establishment of a U.Va. Children’s Hospital Heart Center, helped purchase the first Newborn Emergency Transport System ambulance and funded dozens of U.Va. Children’s Hospital research projects that benefit the field of pediatric medicine. Full story.

Day of Caring
Sign Up Now  for 15th Annual Day of Caring on Sept. 20

University of Virginia faculty and staff can once again show their community how much they care by joining area volunteers from local businesses and organizations for the 15th annual United Way Laurence E. Richardson Day of Caring on Sept. 20. This team effort serves the community in meaningful ways on a wide variety of projects at local nonprofit organizations and public schools — from clerical assistance, to working with children and seniors, to painting, landscaping and construction. Last year, more than 690 of nearly 2,000 volunteers were U.Va. employees who worked at 86 out of 200 project sites in the Charlottesville, Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and Nelson communities.
