Telecommuting at UVa? In the fall of 2014, U.Va. CHARGE sponsored an Innovation Tournament designed to generate innovative solutions, policies, or practices to address the challenges faced by dual career academic couples and the institutional challenges of recruiting and hiring them. The winning proposal outlined a pilot telecommuting project; UVa CHARGE, with support from the provost’s office, is currently investigating how UVa might actualize this proposal.
