Why UVA?

The University of Virginia is a leader in public higher education, ranked #4 Best Public National University by US News & World Report in 2021 and #2 Best-Value Public University by Money Magazine in 2020. We are engaged in world-class education, renowned and innovative research, and world-class health care --- serving the Commonwealth of Virginia, the nation, and the world. Our strategic plan, Great and Good – The 2030 Plan, states that “Our aim is to be the best public university in 2030, and one of the very best in the world, whether public or private.”   Our vision is to be a Great and Good University.

“We should strive not simply to be great, but also to be good, recognizing that in the not-too-distant future, it will likely be impossible for a university to be truly great if it is not also good. The very best faculty, students, and staff are going to want to live, work, and study at institutions in which they can believe wholeheartedly; institutions that are both outstanding and ethical; institutions that are excellent, but excellent for a purpose.”
