Overview

Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) is Virginia�s largest urban university with an enrollment of nearly 30,000 students on two campuses in Richmond and partnerships in Northern Virginia and Doha, Qatar. The university�s history is rooted in two institutions: the Medical College of Virginia, founded in 1838, and the Richmond Professional Institute, which began in 1917. As told in this book, MCV and RPI each have an intricate and detailed history, and each has undergone several incarnations since it began. The two schools merged in 1968 to form Virginia Commonwealth University, setting off a period of unprecedented growth and change. VCU continues to expand its programs and facilities to meet the demands of the city of Richmond and the Commonwealth of Virginia under the leadership of Pres. Eugene P. Trani.
