University of Virginia

The University of Virginia (often abbreviated as UVA, UVa, or Virginia) is a public research university in Charlottesville, Virginia, United States. It was conceived and designed by U.S. President Thomas Jefferson, and established in 1819. UVA's initial Board of Visitors included former Presidents of the United States Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe. Monroe owned the initial site of the University, which was mostly farmland. His law office and farmhouse are now the site of Brown College at Monroe Hill, a residential college at UVA.

UVA is the only university campus in the United States that is designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. UVA's athletic teams compete in Division I of the NCAA and are collectively known as the Virginia Cavaliers. They compete in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
