When you are developing or strengthening your presence on UVA Grounds, targeting the right students is key. We have compiled a list of resources for you to reach the students you want to reach. Please visit the sites below, and feel free to contact us for guidance. When working with a student group, make sure to connect with our Employer Relations team to ensure that your event best matches your organization's recruiting goals and the university calendar.

Contracted Independent Organizations (CIOs)

CIOs are membership-based, student-governed groups. Currently, there are over 800 groups in the UVA CIO database. The McIntire School of Commerce and the School for Engineering and Applied Science also have their own student organizations. Browse the UVA CIO database.

Accessing Other Student Groups

Go to the UVA Website . Under the heading “Organizations and Councils”, you will find a listing of permanent organizations that are governed by students. These organizations exist to advocate for the interests of the student populations they represent. This is where you will find council groups listed by class and school.

Sponsor Programs and Advertise with UVA Career Center

Reach students who utilize UVA Career Center services by partnering with our office to sponsor career fairs or by advertising in Career Center publications. Contact employer relations at (434) 924-8900 for more information.
