Dear Members of the General Assembly:
I am pleased to introduce "U.Va. in the Commonwealth." This booklet
provides an overview of the University of Virginia and the ways in which U.Va.
collaborates with the Commonwealth to benefit Virginia's people.
The following pages contain information about higher education funding,
admissions, and other details of our operations. More importantly, however, this
booklet describes the inter-connectedness of the University and the Commonwealth
and the synergies that are produced by our collaboration. By working together, we
are able to strengthen Virginia's economy, improve health care, and generally
enhance the quality of life for citizens of the Commonwealth.
The booklet describes the University's economic impact in the
Commonwealth as it relates to spending, employment, research, and business
development. In addition to the University's broad impact in Virginia, you will find
information about its specific impact in your district, including the number of
students, alumni, employees, and U.Va. Medical Center patients who live in your
