Fiscal year 2014-15 represented another year of strong performance for the University.

Innovative financial and operational management has enabled the University to make significant progress this year toward a number of goals called for in our academic and medical center strategic plans. The University initiated measures to capitalize on the strength of the balance sheet by completing a complex restructuring of our debt portfolio and we have developed a liquidity model that is designed to optimize investment opportunities while ensuring sufficient resources to address operational needs and strategic priorities. University leaders worked closely with the Board of Visitors Finance Subcommittee to develop Affordable Excellence, a multi-dimensional model that ensures access and affordability to an increasingly diverse student body while sustaining excellence across the Grounds. We continue to make progress on Organizational Excellence initiatives to increase quality, eliminate duplication, enhance effectiveness, and promote efficiency, entrepreneurialism, and innovation. The University of Virginia is positioned well to face future challenges and capitalize on opportunities, both those we know now and those that will emerge in the future.

The University experienced another strong year of performance in fiscal year 2013-14. Thanks to the skill and dedication of all of our people, we are better positioned than most universities to address the challenges facing public higher education. We have made significant strides in mobilizing the necessary resources to address the generational turnover of faculty and to pursue the strategic directions estab¬lished in the Cornerstone Plan. We are focused on advancing the University’s distinctive qualities—an emphasis on close faculty-student interaction in an unparalleled setting, cutting-edge research, and affordable excellence—that continue to distinguish us in a highly competitive landscape and that enable us to deliver value to the citizens of the Commonwealth, the nation, and, increasingly, the world.

We made substantial progress in developing a new internal financial model for the University and also reached a number of milestones in the Health System's strategic plan. Our overriding goal throughout these efforts has been to preserve the academic excellence and efficient management of resources that distinguish the University of Virginia.

It is with special appreciation for my time with you and confidence in our University's futher that I write this letter for the last time. We are in the midst of a very effective transition. John Casteen gave us twenty years of remarkable leardership. He successfully improved the Univiersity's physical surrounds, private support, and academic reputation. He established a strong foundation on which we can build. I now look ahead to the vision and energy of Teresa A. Sullivan.
2008-2009 Financial Report 2008-2009 Financial Report
The global economic crisis made this an extraordinary year for the University of Virginia and institutions of higher education everywhere.

Focusing on core missions provides an occasion to assess the University's areas of strength and emerge from the recession a stronger and smarter institution.

It brought smooth successions in key academic leadership positions; completion of several major building projects, with others commencing; unconditional reaffirmation of the University's accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools; and improvements in the University's financial condition because of implementation of Virginia's 2005 and 2006 restructuring bills, prudent endowment investments, and continued success in our capital campaign.

2006-2007 Financial Report
Thomas Jefferson believed that knowledge should be useful. In an 1813 letter to John Adams, he described the University he was planning to build as a place "where all the useful sciences should be taught." His insistence on the practical aspects of learning was grounded in a pressing necessity: the American Republic urgently needed educated young people who could apply their new knowledge to the governance of the nation.

2005-2006 Financial Report

2005-2006 Financial Report
The University's founder was both visionary and pragmatic. With great confidence and ambition, Mr. Jefferson described the institution he created as "the future bulwark of the human mind in this hemisphere." At the same time, he grounded the curriculum in what he called the "useful sciences." He believed in teaching practical knowledge that ordinary citizens could use to organize and govern a Republic.

In 1825, when classes were first held in the Rotunda and the Pavilions, Mr. Jefferson (nearly 82 years old at the time, and embarked on the last great adventure of his life) expressed the hope that his new University would prove "a blessing to my own state, and not unuseful perhaps to some others." In the past year, his University has proved a blessing not only to Virginia, but to the world.


2003-2004 Financial Report
More than anyone of his extraordinary generation, Thomas Jefferson recognized the power of knowledge to shape the world around him. At every stage of his life, he pursued knowledge with insatiable fervor; through close reading in many subjects, through correspondence with the leading thinkers of his time, and through his own careful observations of natural and human phenomena. We are the heirs of his enthusiasm for learning and discovery.

This period of change is no accident. It is the product of years of thought and planning conducted with the help of our alumni, students, faculty, and friends. Its most visible manifestation is physical, as we build and renovate the facilities we need to support academic and student-life programs of the first order. Equally important is the work that will take place within these new and restored walls. You will discover in these pages that we are looking anew at what we teach and how we teach; we are reshaping our culture to nurture a healthier and more open community; and we are rethinking the ways we sustain the entire enterprise.

These are difficult times for the Commonwealth of Virginia, which provide the University with a period of challenge and opportunity. Facing an accumulated budget deficit initially projected to be $3.8 billion by 2004, our elected officials have had no choice but to make substantial cuts in funding to state agencies, including the University of Virginia. We are dealing with reductions in state support of historic proportion.

2000-2001 Financial Report
At no time in its history has the University of Virginia been better prepared to fulfill the aspirations of its founder. The success of the recent campaign, the strength of our endowment in a volatile market, the support we attract for cutting-edge research, the effective management structures now in place, and the extraordinary community of students and faculty assembled on the Grounds-these and many other positive factors have enabled us to pursue ambitious goals even in difficult times.

At a time when public resources available for higher education are limited, we have forged a unique alliance of alumni, faculty, legislators, business leaders, and administrators that has enabled us to achieve ever higher standards of quality.

1994-95 Financial Report
The 1990s have seen a remarkable resurgence of American Business, as it successfully restructured and repositioned itself for eminence. The University of Virginia has been committed to these same practices consistent with its academic mission, and the results, we believe, have been similar.

1993-94 Financial Report
At the University of Virginia, we are finding new ways to serve more students while preserving the qualities that distinguish our academic programs. We must, first and foremost, teach well. We must quickly apply the discoveries of our laboratories to society's needs. Our Health Sciences Center must change the way it delivers health care. We are being asked, quite simply, to do more - and do it superbly - without the prospect of significant increases in resources.
