A Message from the Chancellor

Since its humble beginnings in 1954, The University of Virginia’s College at Wise has grown into one of the top public liberal arts colleges in the nation. UVA Wise is a vibrant, caring, intellectual community of students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends who believe passionately in the College’s mission of student success and service.

UVA Wise provides students opportunities in the liberal arts and in professional programs. An outstanding faculty and campus community guide students in earning the kind of education that can transform their lives. UVA Wise couples a quality academic experience with numerous opportunities for leadership, international travel, research, and student activities, including NCAA Division II athletics. It is a powerful combination.

It’s a pleasure and a privilege to be part of the College at Wise family: to enjoy its world-class academic, research, and student life facilities, and, most importantly, to work closely with its remarkable faculty, staff and students, and with alumni, parents and friends. I hope you will visit UVA Wise soon to see our beautiful campus and meet with an admission counselor. Students stand ready to provide campus tours. Until then, I urge you to explore our website and learn more about us.
