Go Global on Grounds with VISAS!

WHAT is VISAS?  Volunteers with International Students, Scholars, and Staff (VISAS) is an organization that provides programming to English language learners at the University of Virginia and its extended community. Our services are free of charge and available to international students (undergraduate, graduate, exchange, etc.), researchers, faculty, family members of students and faculty, and University staff.

WHY does VISAS exist? Our mission is to provide international English language learners in the UVa community with opportunities to expand their communication skills in both classroom and casual settings. Through our academic and social programs, we are making the University a more welcoming place where English learners can achieve their personal goals and intercultural friendships can flourish.   

WHO is VISAS looking for? We are seeking both English language learners who would like to enroll in our programs, as well as UVA students/staff/administrators with native-level proficiency in English who can serve as volunteers in our various programs.
