Have you ever asked yourself: How are students navigating college campuses these days? What’s the future of collegiate athletics? And really, what is a Provost, anyway? Join University of Virginia President Jim Ryan and members of the UVA community as they dive Inside UVA with candid, open conversations in this WTJU co-sponsored podcast.
Inside UVA with Chief Operating Officer J.J. Davis
Even if you don't know what the Chief Operating Officer does, if you live, work or study at UVA, you've almost certainly gotten an email from Jennifer “J.J.” Wagner Davis. She's the one who lets us know when there's a snow day or a test to the emergency system, and this past year she's sent us a lot of updates about COVID-19. Tune in to hear about how UVA upended its operations to ensure safety during COVID-19 and get to know the person behind the emails.
Inside UVA with the Rector of the BOV
A lot has changed at UVA since Mr. Whitt Clement finished his undergraduate degree in 1970. And he's been around to witness and take part in that change, first as a Law Student, then serving on the Alumni Association Board, the Parent's Committee, and now on the Board of Visitors as Rector. In this episode of Inside UVA he shares stories from across his time at UVA and explains what the word "Rector" means.
Inside UVA with Provost Liz Magill
Liz Magill has had a very eventful two years as the Provost at UVA. But first, do you know what the Provost actually does? Tune in to learn about this essential role at most universities. You'll also get the inside scoop on how UVA leadership made decisions during COVID-19 and maybe even learn a little bit about kickboxing.
Inside UVA with the Chief Student Affairs Officer
Vice President and Chief Student Affairs Officer Robyn Hadley has only been on the job three months. But she's already immersed herself in student life. In her new residence in one of the Pavillions on the Lawn she is literally surrounded by university life night and day. In this episode of Inside UVA, President Ryan asks the new Vice President about her time as a student athlete, what it's like to work with student organizations, and what her priorities are for this unusual academic year.

In the inaugural episode of Inside UVA, President Jim Ryan asks Coach Mendenhall about his unconventional equestrian recruitment tradition, coaching during COVID, and, of course, the upcoming 2021 Football season. Tune in for the first of many candid conversations with President Ryan about what's going on Inside UVA.

Love this podcast!
As a UVA alum and current UVA parent, I find President Ryan to be extremely accessible, approachable, and transparent. So it makes complete sense that he would host a podcast to highlight what makes UVA so special. Great start!
Couldn’t have started off with a better first guest. Looking forward to future episodes!
