VCU 50: Commemorating History Symposium

When the Wayne Commission formed Virginia Commonwealth University in 1968, they merged two institutions—the Medical College of Virginia (MCV) and Richmond Professional Institute (RPI)—that had longed focused on serving the public good. In creating VCU, the commission saw an opportunity to join two strong institutions that together could accelerate our public mission and lead in solving complex public problems.

This year presents an important opportunity to celebrate and reflect on our 50 years as one institution.

On Friday, November 30, the university will host Commemorating History: Challenges and Opportunities, a day-long symposium to examine VCU's connection to the legacies of MCV and RPI, explore how the institution has evolved across five decades, consider our achievements as well as our complicated and difficult history, and discuss how we commemorate history on campus.

Alumni, students, current and retired faculty and staff, friends and community members are invited to attend a day of panels, research poster presentations and informative sessions featuring esteemed historians, speakers and members of the VCU and VCU Health communities, including Eugene Trani, president emeritus of VCU and VCU Health System; Beverly Warren, president and chief executive officer of Kent State University and former VCU provost and senior vice president for academic affairs; and Edward Ayers, president emeritus of the University of Richmond.
