University of Virginia
In 1819 Thomas Jefferson fulfilled his lifelong ambition to create a better institution of higher learning, one that would prepare America's citizens to lead and govern the new nation. His University would be the first to engineer cross-disciplinary exchange between the sciences and humanities, history and chemistry, and students and professors. It would encourage the academic enterprise to advance knowledge, train leaders and break through traditional boundaries. Nearly 200 years after its founding, the University is at the forefront of important cross-disciplinary work being done by faculty and students across its 11 notable schools. That work draws on the considerable resources and innovative thinking of this tier-one research institution, which is also the nation’s #2 public university. The University of Virginia is distinctive among public institutions of higher education. Founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, the University continues in its mission to develop tomorrow’s leaders who are well prepared to help shape the future of the nation and the world. The University is highly selective, accepting only the best students and those who show the exceptional promise Jefferson envisioned. The University of Virginia is made up of eleven schools in Charlottesville plus the College at Wise in Southwest Virginia. Not including the College at Wise, the University employs more than 28,000 people, including approximately 16,000 faculty and staff and approximately 7,000 Health System employees.
Developing a globally aware, culturally diverse education and research environment has always been a priority at UVA, and The International Studies Office (ISO) was created to support this goal. A University-wide resource offering internationally oriented activities, programs and services, the ISO provides the expertise and infrastructure needed to bring international scholars to Grounds and to facilitate education abroad for UVA students. Since 1826, when the University enrolled its first international student, they’ve been dedicated to bringing scholars to Grounds from around the world. UVA has always taken pride in creating opportunities for global citizens to study, teach and share in the Jeffersonian way of learning. Each day, their International Students and Scholars Program support their adjustments to the U.S. and to the University community. The University of Virginia is located in Charlottesville, Virginia, approximately 120 miles southwest of Washington, DC. At nearly 2,000 acres, the University of Virginia’s Grounds cover a large part of the City of Charlottesville.
