Old Dominion University's annual Founders' Day celebration is scheduled for Nov. 12. The event, which is being held virtually this year and will honor the University's resilience and leadership over the past 30 years, will get underway at 12:30 p.m.

The highlight will be the presentation of the Town-N-Gown Rita M. Costello Community Service Award.

President John R. Broderick will deliver the opening remarks, and President Emeritus James V. Koch will give the keynote address.

You can go to ODU's Office of Community Engagement Facebook page during Founders' Day week for more information.

The event is free and open to the public, but you must submit an RSVP for the event at this link by Nov. 11.

Founders' Day is co-hosted by Town-N-Gown, an independent association dedicated to developing a mutual understanding between Old Dominion and the civilian and military communities of Hampton Roads. The event was first held in 1987.
