The University of Virginia’s Bicentennial Commemoration is a celebration of UVA’s achievements, a recognition of the imperfections of its past, and a visualization of its future. The story began 200 years ago with the creation of a new model for higher learning, one shaped by the belief that only educated citizen-leaders would be capable of sustaining freedom in a new republic. From Thomas Jefferson’s original conception of the Academical Village, the story continued through the years, as UVA evolved from a regional institution of limited renown to one of the great national and global universities of the 21st century. At the University of Virginia today, we continue to pursue the goal that has inspired our community since its inception — forging the leaders of tomorrow through the sharing of knowledge and the candid exchange of ideas.
As we tell the UVA story at this milestone moment in its history, we renew our dedication to Thomas Jefferson’s belief in the “illimitable freedom of the human mind.” For 200 years, this commitment has energized our University community, and it will continue to animate life at UVA for centuries to come.
