| university of virginia | | History | The University of Virginia was founded in 1819 by Thomas Jefferson, who outlined the institution’s purpose, designed its buildings, supervised construction, planned the curriculum and directed the recruitment of the first faculty. 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 the 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 1987, UNESCO designated the academical village a World Heritage site. | 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 preserve 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 2012-13 school year, the University enrolled a total of 21,095 students: 14,641 undergraduates and 6,454 graduate students. Sixty-nine percent of the University’s undergraduate students are Virginia residents, with students coming from 47 states and 121 foreign countries. The total undergraduate student population is 55 percent women and 45 percent men. The University of Virginia continues to excel in the U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings. In 2013, U.S. News & World Report’s ranked U.Va. as the nation’s No. 2 public university, No. 5 for best undergraduate business programs and No. 24 for Best National University. Since U.S. News began a separate listing of the top 50 public universities, U.Va. has never been ranked lower than No. 2. In the 31-year history of the rankings, U.Va. has never dropped out of the top 25 listing of all public and private universities. With a six-year graduation rate of 94 percent, U.Va. consistently ranks as one of the best among public universities. Research and teaching are carried out in the University’s 11 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 Darden Graduate School of Business Administration, the Frank 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. U.Va.’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 2,704 in 2012-13. 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. 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 more than 170 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 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.

2012-13 Highlights • • • •

Virginia finished 20th in the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings. Teams or individuals from 19 of the Cavaliers’ 25 intercollegiate athletics programs advanced to NCAA postseason competition in 2012-13. The Cavaliers captured their first NCAA championship in men’s tennis. ITA Men’s National College Player and Senior of the Year Jarmere Jenkins and freshman Mac Styslinger became the third men’s tennis duo in the past five years to win the NCAA Doubles Championship. • Other team highlights from the year included the rowing team’s fifth-place national finish, baseball’s fourth NCAA Super Regional appearance in the last five years and the men’s tennis team winning the ITA National Team Indoor Championship for the fifth time in the past six years. • UVa won five Atlantic Coast Conference championships and now has won 56 in the last 11 years. The Cavaliers won ACC championships in rowing (13th in 14 years), men’s swimming and diving (sixth consecutive and 14th in 15 years), women’s swimming and diving (sixth consecutive), men’s tennis (seventh consecutive and ninth in the last 10 years) and women’s soccer. • 47 Virginia student-athletes earned All-America honors. • Two Virginia coaches earned ACC Coach of the Year Awards in 2012-13: Kevin Sauer (rowing) and Brian O’Connor (baseball).
