At a gathering Wednesday evening at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C., President Sullivan met with the University’s many alumni and friends who work in the government and private sectors in the area. She also thanked Virginia’s congressional delegation for its support of UVA.
“Having strong support in Washington helps us fulfill the University’s missions in teaching, research, and clinical care, and we greatly appreciate everything you do for us,” President Sullivan said.
Those from the Virginia delegation who attended were Congressmen Tom Garrett, Bob Goodlatte, Donald McEachin, and Bobby Scott. Also in attendance was Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee from Texas, who also went to the UVA School of Law.
President Sullivan highlighted work that the UVA Career Center is doing with a group of alumni on Capitol Hill to help find internship and job opportunities for UVA students.
Staff in the Career Center produce a Capitol Hill résumé book four times a year; it includes résumés from current students and recent graduates who are interested in working on the Hill. Those interested in seeing this resume book or getting involved in other ways should contact David Lapinski, director of employee relations for the UVA Career Center.
