Summer Jefferson Symposium 2022

Sunday, June 26 - 9:00 AM

Explore the life and legacy of Thomas Jefferson


Thomas Jefferson was elected president in 1800 in what he termed the “Revolution of 1800.” He promised to rework government and fundamentally change the direction of the Nation. As president, he doubled the size of the Nation with the Louisiana Purchase, cut federal spending dramatically, opened West Point as part of his program to democratize and expand the Nation, created enormous internal and external conflicts with his trade embargo, and launched the Nation into an extended period as a Jeffersonian Republic. Studying Jefferson during his eight years in the highest executive office provides important insights both into Jefferson and the nature of the presidency even today. The Jefferson Symposium is a four day experience where you get enriched into the University of Virginia and the Presidency of Thomas Jefferson.
