What is the Virginia Review of Politics?

The Virginia Review of Politics (VRoP or the Review) is an undergraduate political review at the University of Virginia. The Review publishes engaging political content for both the University population and the local community. The Review focuses on publishing high-quality student content aiming at a middle range between undergraduate academic journals and student newspaper opinion sections. In doing so, the Review seeks to prompt discussion amongst politically and civically-minded individuals.

In particular, the Review prioritizes variety in perspectives by engaging with individuals from diverse intellectual and political backgrounds. By giving politically inexperienced individuals a platform with which to develop their political ideas and suggestions, the Review hopes to foster an environment in which people of diverse interests may all positively contribute to the study of politics.

Articles published by the Review reflect only the opinions of their authors, and do not reflect upon the Virginia Review of Politics's official position on issues.

Non-affiliation and Non-discrimination language

Non-affiliation text

Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization, which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.

Non-discrimination text

The Virginia Review of Politics does not restrict its membership, programs, or activities on the basis of age, color, disability, gender identity, marital status, national or ethnic origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, veteran status, and family and genetic information. Notwithstanding these requirements, a CIO may petition to restrict its membership based on gender (e.g. all-male or all-female a cappella groups) or an ability to perform the activities related to the organization’s purpose by filing a written request with the Office of the Dean of Students. In evaluating any such requests, the University will look not merely to the constitution of an organization but to its actual practices and operations.
