Ambassador Series

The UVA Center for Politics Ambassador Series opened on the first day of class during the 2014 fall semester with the hosting of His Excellency Sergey Kislyak, Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the United States. This event took place in the midst of the Ukraine crisis, attracting an audience of over 400. Since that time thousands of University of Virginia students, faculty, staff, and members of the Charlottesville community through the Ambassador Series have received the opportunity to engage with ambassadors from around the world. The Ambassador Series provides the opportunity to learn about the relationships between our countries and directly engage with leaders on the world stage.
