Virginia Commonwealth University

School Description

Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) can trace its roots back to 1838 when the medical department of Hampden-Sydney College opened in Richmond. In 1884 Hampden-Sydney College received a charter establishing the Medical College of Virginia (MCV). In 1893, the College of Physicians and Surgeons, later the University College of Medicine (UCM) was established. In the years that followed, MCV established a School of Dentistry and a School of Pharmacy; and a few years later MCV and UCM merged. The School saw further developments and expansions over the years, such as the establishment of Richmond School of Social Economy; St. Philip School of Nursing; School of Art; the MCV Hospital; and the School of Medical Technology among others. In 1968 RPI and MCV merge to become Virginia Commonwealth University.

Today VCU has over 31,000 students from 108 countries; over 2200 full time faculty members studying and teaching at its 13 schools of Allied Health Professions, Arts, Business, da Vinci Center, Dentistry, Education, Engineering, Government & Public Affairs, Graduate School, Honors College, Humanities & Sciences, Life Sciences, Media & Culture, Medicine, Nursing, Office of Research and Innovation, Pharmacy, Social Work, University College, and World Studies.
