Message from the Dean

It is my privilege to share that – thanks to our community’s generosity – we are celebrating the best year ever for philanthropic support of the people and projects at our School of Medicine and VCU Health.

With the books closed on fiscal year 2021, MCV Campus total fundraising stands at $93 million – exceeding the campus goal of $89 million. Med-Health philanthropic priorities led the way, garnering $66 million – an all-time high. This comes on the heels of the record-breaking Make It Real Campaign for VCU that secured vital funding for students and faculty members, including the creation of 22 new endowed professorships and chairs.

Pride in our Accomplishments: Record-Breaking Philanthropy

Our Commitment to Diversity

Diversity is absolutely essential at a research university, just as it is in life. It is an indispensable part of the learning process. It shapes what we learn and how we learn it, how we solve problems, how we interact with one another, and how we think about ourselves and each other.
