Faculty Spotlight


Associate Professor Charlotte Matthews is a well-regarded poet with three full-length collections to her credit. It is not surprising, therefore, that she brings her sense of the poet’s craft to the writing classes she teaches for the School’s Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies. Not only does she begin and end each class with a poem, but she also works to cultivate a poet’s mindset in her students.

I want my students to realize that good writing just doesn’t happen. You have to work at it.

"At first I dismissed it, because I thought there was no way I could get into UVA, but it was geared perfectly toward me and nontraditional students like me."

“The program has been extremely challenging, but also thought-provoking. It’s called for us to think outside of the box and think about policing from a different perspective.”
Portrait of Anne Lassere
Fifteen years after graduating from high school, Anne Lassere returned to UVA and wound up honing two of her passions: construction and writing.
