Founders Day Tree Planting Ceremony — Honoring Dr. Marcus Martin

Friday, April 12, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

In 1970, the University instituted an annual tradition of planting a tree on Founder’s Day to honor an individual who has made significant and lasting contributions to the University. This Founder's Day will pay tribute to Dr. Marcus Martin, who, during his 23 years of service to UVA, has provided strong leadership in the medical community and worked tirelessly on diversity and equity initiatives on Grounds and beyond. Ceremony will include remarks from President Ryan, Worthy Martin, chair of the Arboretum and Landscape Committee, and Martin.
