In 2001, businessman and philanthropist John W. Kluge made a gift of historic Morven Farm to the University of Virginia for academic purposes and educational use. Located in southeastern Albemarle County near Monticello and Ash Lawn-Highland, Morven is situated in a remarkable neighborhood with a history of experimentation and innovation.

Overseen by the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost, Morven Programs focuses on teaching, research, and outreach, reflecting the University of Virginia’s strategic priorities for global education, science and technology, and enhancement of the student experience. Initiatives include the Presidential Precinct, Morven Summer Institute, and Morven Kitchen Garden.
