As the first Rector of the University, Jefferson presided over the school’s governing body, known as the Board of Visitors. James Madison and James Monroe were members of the board in early years. When it opened for classes in 1825, the University of Virginia represented a dramatic innovation in American education. In an era when colleges trained students almost exclusively for teaching and the ministry, Jefferson dedicated his University to the education of leaders in practical affairs and public service. the grounds | Jefferson designed his “academical village” to house teachers and students alike in four long rows of rooms interspersed with larger buildings that provided classrooms and dwelling space for faculty families. The Rotunda is the focal point of the historic central Grounds. In 1976, the American Institute of Architects proclaimed the academical village one of the outstanding achievements of American architecture; in 1988, the Lawn was named to the prestigious World Heritage List. | | the university today | Although the University has expanded to encompass more than 11,000 acres, it retains the intimacy that characterized the academical village. University planners have been careful to reserve open space for study and contemplation while erecting modern facilities for each of the six undergraduate schools as well as the professional schools. In the 2009-10 school year, the University enrolled a total of 20,895 students: 14,297 undergraduates and 6,598 graduate students. Sixty-nine percent of the University’s undergraduate students are Virginia residents, with students coming from 48 states and 120 foreign countries. The total undergraduate student population is 56 percent women and 44 percent men, while the ratio of undergraduate students to instructional faculty is 15.2 to 1. The University of Virginia continues to excel in the U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings. In April 2010, many of UVa’s graduate programs earned top recognitions. In August 2009, U.S. News & World Report’s latest undergraduate college rankings placed the UVa as the nation’s No. 2 public university and 24th (tied with UCLA) among 248 national universities. Since U.S. News began a separate listing of the top 50 public universities, UVa has never been ranked lower than No. 2. In the 20-year history of the rankings, UVa has never dropped out of the top 25 listing of all public and private universities. UVa also has the highest graduation rate among public universities. Research and teaching are carried out in the University’s 12 schools: the School of Architecture, the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, the Curry School of Education, the Colgate Darden Graduate School of Business Administration, the Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the School of Law, the McIntire School of Commerce, the School of Medicine and the School of Nursing. | the faculty | In creating an academical village, Jefferson sought scholars who had distinguished reputations and were willing to live among their students—an unusual, but from Jefferson’s point of view, essential combination. UVa’s faculty, one of the most distinguished groups of scholars and researchers in the country, still exemplifies this tradition. The University’s full-time instructional and research faculty numbered 2,159 in 2009-10. Twenty-five faculty members have been selected as Guggenheim fellows; twenty-six have been awarded Fulbright fellowships; six faculty members have been named National Endowment for the Humanities fellows. Two faculty researchers have won Presidential Young Investigator Awards, and three have won Sloan Foundation Awards. In the sciences, three University of Virginia faculty members have received highly prestigious Packard Foundation Awards. Members of the faculty have won major prizes from various national associations, including the Bancroft Prize of the American Historical Association and the Distinguished Science Award of the American Psychological Association. Despite the demands of research and writing, members of the University faculty are remarkably attentive to the needs of their students. In addition to their teaching responsibilities, faculty members serve as academic advisors. It’s not unusual to encounter students clustered in the hall outside a professor’s office, waiting for a chance to discuss papers or review classwork. the honor system | The Honor System is one of the University’s oldest and most venerated traditions. Based on a fundamental core value that lying, cheating, or stealing will not tolerated by students who enroll at the University and live within its “community of trust,” the Honor System allows students the kind of personal freedom possible only in an environment in which respect and trust are presumed. For nearly 160 years, this system has been administered by students. | | visit the university’s website | For more information about the University, visit its website at Virginia.edu. Visitors to the Web site can view electronic versions of all the undergraduate applications and even print out an undergraduate application. Admissions information for graduate and professional students is also available. | cavalier athletics | The University of Virginia athletics program is a shining example of how one of the nation’s top institutions of higher learning has combined high academic achievement, fielded nationally competitive and successful athletics teams and integrated student-athletes into the University and local community. A member of the 12-school Atlantic Coast Conference, Virginia fields 25 athletics teams. There are 12 sport programs for men and 13 for women. Virginia is annually one of the top overall intercollegiate athletics programs in the nation. Success at Virginia is not by happenstance. In 2002 Athletics Director Craig Littlepage announced an aggressive “10-Year Goals” campaign to ensure future success for the Cavaliers’ program. The heart and soul of Virginia athletics are its student-athletes. Tremendous ambassadors for their school, athletics program and chosen sports, they have led the school to spectacular athletic accomplishments. 2011-12 Highlights • Virginia finished 15th in the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings. • Teams or individuals in 22 of Virginia’s 25 intercollegiate athletics programs advanced to postseason competition in 2011-12. • Some of the highlights from the year included the rowing team’s second NCAA Championship in three years, a second-place finish in the NCAA Tournament by the men’s tennis team and a fourth-place finish at the NCAA Championships by the women’s golf team. • The Cavalier men’s basketball team returned to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007 and the UVa football team played in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, its first postseason appearance since the 2007 season. • Three coaches were named ACC coach of the year (football – Mike London; rowing – Kevin Sauer; men’s tennis – Brian Boland). • Rowing head coach Kevin Sauer was named National Coach of the Year by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association. • David Karasek (men’s swimming and diving) and Matt Snyder (wrestling) were named ACC Scholar-Athletes for their sports. • Baseball participated in the NCAA Tournament for the ninth consecutive year and hosted a regional for the third straight season. • Men’s basketball forward Mike Scott was named a third-team All-American and first-team All-ACC selection. • The Cavalier women’s basketball team won 25 games under first-year coach Joanne Boyle, including an upset of No. 3 Tennessee. • The women’s cross country team placed 20th at the NCAA Championships after winning the NCAA Southeast Regional title for the second consecutive year. • Virginia field hockey players Paige Selenski and Michelle Vittese were members of the Unites States’ team that won the gold medal at the Pan American Games in October of 2011. • The Cavalier football team became the first college football program to ever win road games at Miami and Florida State in the same season. • Senior cornerback Chase Minnifield was named Pop Warner Football’s National College Player of the Year. • Men’s golfer Ben Rusch won the ACC title, the first Cavalier to do so since 1955. • Denny McCarthy was named the ACC men’s golf Freshman of the Year. • Head women’s golf coach Kim Lewellen was named National Coach of the Year in October of 2011 by the Ladies Professional Golf Association Teaching and Club Professional membership. • Senior attackman Steele Stanwick, the ACC Offensive Player of the Year, received the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association’s (USILA) Jack Turnball Award as the top collegiate attackman in the nation. • The UVa women’s lacrosse team participated in the NCAA Tournament for the 17th consecutive season. • The UVa men’s soccer team extended the nation’s longest streak of participating in the NCAA Tournament by receiving its 31st consecutive bid. • Freshman midfielder Morgan Brian was Soccer America’s Women’s Freshman of the Year, the ACC Freshman of the Year and a semifinalist for the Hermann Award. • The men’s swimming and diving team won the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship for the fifth consecutive year and for the 13th time in the last 14 years, and finished 15th at the NCAA Championships. • The women’s swimming and diving team won the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship for the fifth consecutive year and finished 17th at the NCAA Championships. • Ellen Williamson was the ACC women’s swimming Freshman of the Year • Men’s tennis senior Jarmere Jenkins was honored as the ACC Player of the Year and freshman Mitchell Frank was the ACC Freshman of the Year and the ITA National Rookie of the Year. • Lindsey Hardenbergh became the first UVa women’s tennis player to be selected to compete in three NCAA singles championships. • The newly renovated Lannigan Field hosted the ACC Championships where freshman Nick Vena was named the Most Valuable Field Performer. • The women’s track and field team placed second at the ACC Outdoor Championships, the program’s best showing since 1995.
