UCARE Student Research:
UVa Students created this website about Jordan Hall.
- Jordan Hall was named after Harvey E. Jordan. A medical professor, the dean of the University of Virginia’s School of Medicine, and a prominent Eugenicist, Jordan was a controversial figure. We hope to promote truth and awareness about Harvey E. Jordan. Jordan is a part of the university’s history, therefore we feel that it is important for our university community to know both the positive and negative aspects that Jordan contributed.
Independent Study students in Spring 2011 contributed greatly to UCARE by compiling research on a variety of subjects of their choosing and writing formal research papers on those topics. Other student work by UCARE interns is included here as well. Below are some of those papers.
- Rights or Privileges-Entitlement and the Women of Color Contracted Employees at the University of Virginia
- Self-Governing or Self-Segregating-Analyzing the Absent Role of CIOs in Relation to the University’s Diversity & Equity Initiatives
- The University and the State of Housing
- Dishonorable People-The undocumented, their parents, and their exclusion from the University community
- Young Women Leaders Program: Constructing Meaningful Mentorships in Charlottesville, Virginia
- Redefiing the UVa Community
- Invisible Under Our Feet: A Community’s History Of Physical And Ideological Exclusion
- Realizing the Promises of Service-Learning in Charlottesville: An analysis of power, partnerships, and ‘community’
- Initiatives at Peer Institutions to Address the History of Slavery at a Local Level
UCARE’s Nonprofit List
Another area of need identified in our community meetings is for a “clearinghouse” of information about existing organizations and projects in the community engaged in promoting equity and justice. UCARE agreed to begin this process by organizing area groups’ names, mission statements, programs, and contact information into one document. This list is in the preliminary stages, but is currently being used by the Dialogue on Race action teams. This list will be continually added to as we hear from groups and learn more. This list is currently being managed by UCARE and is available here: UCARE Non-Profit List: June2010 (.pdf). If you have an organization that you would like to see added to the list, please let us know by emailing the staff account with all relevant information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
