Pipelines & Pathways is an initiative of President Ryan’s Council on UVA - Community Partnerships and was developed by the President’s working group on local jobs and wages. The goal of the program is to increase the number of individuals residing in underserved communities in the Charlottesville region who are hired by the University, decrease the rate of turnover, and increase the number of Academic Division and University Medical Center employees who advance up the career ladder.

As a job seeker, Pipelines & Pathways is committed to helping individuals looking for entry-level opportunities that do not require higher levels of education or work experience. Our goal is to help you get through the door at UVA and into employment with opportunities with upward mobility. We work with you each step of the way as you navigate your career journey with us. Through the Community Connections Hub, we partner with you to assess your skills and interests and assist you to obtain full-time, part-time, temporary, and wage employment available through the University’s Academic Division, University Medical Center, University of Virginia Physicians Group, and University – Associated Organizations (Foundations).
In addition to job placement, we also work with you to determine any barriers to employment that you may be facing such as transportation, childcare, housing, and criminal history. To afford you the best opportunity for success, we connect you with resources in the local community that can assist you with any challenges, so you can spend time focusing on your job! Additionally, we provide training opportunities to support you along your career journey, including: resume writing, mock interviewing, basic computer skills, workplace readiness, financial literacy, and much more.
Once you are on the job, Pipelines & Pathways continues to connect with you regarding your career goals to help you plan for upward mobility within UVA. After six months of employment, you will have access to a Career Coach who will work one-on-one with you to identify opportunities for continuing education that will move you closer to your professional aspirations. This includes reviewing career mappings that make the next steps along your pathway clear to you!
