WHAT IS 4-VA?
4-VA is a collaborative partnership between four Virginia universities. Its mission is to promote inter-university collaborations that leverage the strengths of each partner university in order to accomplish much more than any individual university could acheive alone. In addition, 4-VA strives to do the following:
1. Decrease the cost of delivering instruction
2. Expand access for all Virginians to programs preparing them for rewarding careers
3. Increase research competitiveness
4. Enhance the success rate of students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathmatics (STEM) courses and programs.

Nick Swayne is the Director and Campus Coordinator. Kai Brojamp is the Assistant Director and also works closely with the 4VA Graduate and Undergraduate Assistants.
