The Tibet Center promotes an integrated model of knowledge and practice consisting of study programs, research initiatives, library collections, collaborative scholarly initiatives, and engaged social programs hosted by the University of Virginia. The Tibet Center brings together University faculty, students, staff, and alumni from a wide variety of disciplines and offers Tibet-related courses, cultural programs, speaker series, and community engagement. The Center also reaches beyond the University to connect scholars of Tibetan Studies around the world, advance collaborative research, relate the academy to people from across social sectors, and foster programs of direct benefit to modern-day Tibetans in specific local communities.
Co-directors: David Germano and Tashi Rabgey
Core faculty and staff at UVa include Kurtis Schaeffer, Steve Weinberger, Tsetan Chonjore, and Nawang Thokmay.

The Tibet Sustainable Governance Program is a second major component of the UVa Tibet Center, and represents its innovation in transposing new ideas and insights into practical solutions and policy options, and finding common ground with a broad range of stakeholders as well as to develop a shared sense of normative aspiration for human well-being across different sectors.
Building upon the University of Virginia’s long-standing commitment to Tibetan Studies since the 1960s, the Tibet Center was established in 2008.
