Juneteenth was first designated as an official state holiday in Virginia in 2020, during a summer of social unrest in our city, commonwealth and nation. It serves as an opportunity for us to acknowledge and reflect on a period in our recent past that continues to shape our present and future.

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.
