Richmond Times-Dispatch partners with the Library of Virginia for sponsorship of One Day University

Richmond, VA – The Richmond Times-Dispatch announces that the Library of Virginia has agreed to be the first presenting sponsor of its One Day University program in Richmond.

Through its sponsorship, the Library of Virginia will have the opportunity to raise awareness of its programs and services along with One Day University promotions. The first opportunity occurred on Saturday, March 3, when The Times-Dispatch presented its fifth One Day University program.

 “We appreciate the Library of Virginia working with us on our One Day University program that is attracting large crowds each time,” RTD President and Publisher Tom Silvestri said. “This is also a great chance for the Library of Virginia to talk about its outstanding exhibits and offerings.”

An RTD signature event, One Day University brings renowned college professors from around the country to Richmond for daylong seminars inspired by recent headlines and pop culture. The series is a favorite of lifelong learners, and returns on June 16 with its sixth installment: a new film festival for the Richmond audience. Ticketholders will see 10 award-winning short films during the event at the Virginia Museum of History & Culture.

Later this year, on Sept. 22, ODU returns to its seminar format in Richmond for the fall program, “A Day of Genius.”

For event sponsorship and programming information, contact Jamie Dumas, Events Manager,, (804) 649-6186.
