Founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, the University of Virginia offers one of the world’s most iconic undergraduate experiences. Designed as a machine to foster ingenuity, UVa has stood as a center for critical thought designed not just to create a better kind of university but also to create better leaders and a more informed society. In the last two centuries, generations of UVa students, faculty, and alumni have continued to live out these ideas, in service to the common good. In a setting of extraordinary beauty, students from all walks of life and parts of the world gather to exchange ideas, dream boldly, and commit themselves to a better society and a better world.
