Consistently ranked as one of the top public universities, the quality of research, scholarship, creative arts, and innovation at UVA is particularly important because of the dual mission inherent in its identity as a collegiate research university. The University is large enough to support excellence in research and teaching, yet small enough to promote the collegiality and the interplay of ideas that are critical for academic leadership and innovation. While smaller colleges and universities focus on disseminating knowledge to students, the University's charge-as a public Research 1 university-is broader and more exacting. Its scope encompasses discovery as well as dissemination-and the dissemination of these discoveries not just to its students but also to the public, who can help translate them into practical applications.About UVA HealthUVA Health is a world-class academic medical center and health system with a Level 1 trauma center, an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, and UVA Children's.

Through teaching and research, we continue to advance medicine and innovate excellence while providing high-quality care.UVA Health recently announced its first enterprise-wide strategic plan, "One Future Together - Hope & Health for All" as an extension of the University's "Great and Good" strategic plan. The first in the institution's history, this ten-year plan sets the ambitious goal of becoming the nation's leading public academic health system and the best place to work. This will be accomplished by transforming patient care, research, education, and engagement with diverse communities in the regions it serves.
