Fiscal year 2017-18 represents an important year of transition for the University of Virginia, with opportunities to reflect on the past, to make a difference in the present, and to honor the promise of the future at the beginning of the University’s third century.
Once again, the University received recognition for providing a high quality educational experience at an excellent value. U.S. News & World Report most recently ranked UVA No. 3 in the nation for Best Public University and No. 2 for Best Value Public University. The Princeton Review rated UVA as the No. 1 Best-Value Public College. The University of Virginia consistently has been ranked near the top among all public universities and the top 25 of all universities in the nation since U.S. News began publishing its rankings more than three decades ago. We have held this position by, among other things, making strategic decisions to invest our resources to achieve and sustain educational excellence and to promote access and affordability for our students.
