Restructuring at UVa-Wise

On July 1, 2006, Virginia’s public higher education institutions entered a new era.  Under the Restructured Higher Education Financial and Administrative Operations Act, colleges and universities gained substantial freedom from state control in areas such as tuition and personnel management, if those institutions met state standards and goals.  The University of Virginia met the standards for the highest level of autonomy and, as a college of the University, UVa-Wise is included in this designation.
