Your Feedback and Input is Encouraged!
Project leadership and the project team definitely want to hear from you! Here are a few ways to reach out:
- Check in with representatives from your school or unit (we have Steering Committee members, Advisory Group members, and Checkpoint Team members in a searchable database).
- Get in touch with anyone on the project team. Our contact info is available here. We’re ready and listening! Not sure who to email? Just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make sure you get a well-informed response quickly
- If you have a great idea or a question you think others might share, we encourage you to share it in the online community. Not only are we very responsive in that channel, but also, your colleagues can interact with your thoughts, too. It’s a great way to connect with others and keep all of our concerns, inspiration, and feedback in the open. NEW: Check out this quick intro to using CommunityHub.
- Want your feedback to remain anonymous? You’re welcome to drop us a line via the FST webpage feedback feature in the top right corner of every page on this site.
There’s no wrong way to give feedback and no such thing as a dumb question. We are striving for this to be an inclusive process. When questions and concerns surface, we’ll do our best to get those answered both privately and in forums where others can benefit from them. Often this takes the form of us posting frequently asked questions in the community or on our website, without names of the original askers.

UVAFinance has launched an online community space for all finance professionals at the University. Hosted on the Jive platform used for the UBI Community, the Finance Community is a place where you can get all the latest on Finance Strategic Transformation, ask questions about the project, suggest ideas, and much more.
