Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medals


The medals, struck for the occasion, will be presented by Leslie Greene Bowman, president of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, and Teresa Sullivan, president of the University of Virginia, at a luncheon in the Rotunda Dome Room on Friday, April 11. The recipients will also be honored at a dinner at Monticello on Thursday, April 10, and each will give a free public talk at U.Va. (schedule).

The medals are the highest external honor bestowed by the University of Virginia, which grants no honorary degrees.

The medal in Architecture was established in 1966, the medal in Law in 1977, and the medal in Citizen Leadership in 2006.
