A note about the UVP Network
The UVP Network is composed of faculty administrators who, while having many different titles, share a distinctive role: all-University administrative responsibility for undergraduate education. The UVP Network has come to play a central role, along with the Board and Executive Director, in identifying the topics and issues the Collaborative focuses on in distinctive periods.
People who hold a UVP role at non-member research universities are invited to attend for a registration fee of $250 that can be applied to the 2017-18 membership dues; they should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
