Community Affairs Committee
Jeffrey Roberson is a third year Spanish and Global Public Health major in the College. He is extremely excited to serve as Co-Chair of the Community Affairs Committee for the second year and looks forward to strengthening bonds between UVa and the Charlottesville-Albermarle area through cooperative programs. Aside from Student Council, he is an active volunteer with the Charlottesville Free Clinic and the International Studies Office. An outdoor enthusiast, Jeff recently completed climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, and his favorite Charlottesville past time is walking up Humpback.
Annie Wilkins is a rising third year in the College majoring in Psychology. Outside of Council she is involved with the Office of Engagement as a Student Ambassador to the UVa Club of Tidewater and is also Tridelta’s Philanthropy Chair and a member of the Survivor Support Network through the UVa Women’s Center. Annie has an honest desire to help the student body in any way possible as well as a commitment to bringing the Charlottesville community and the UVa community together.
The Community Affairs committee seeks to strengthen and develop ties between the University community and the greater Charlottesville community. Whether it is through service, support of local arts and music, or engaging local business, Community Affairs hopes to encourage greater mutual acknowledgment and utilization of all of the many resources that UVa and Charlottesville have to offer.
