Inclusion and Diversity
Ready to thrive in today’s world.
Virginia Tech’s charge as a land-grant institution is to welcome all prepared residents of the commonwealth to an accessible education — and there is a clear mandate from employers, who want to hire college graduates who are capable of thriving in diverse, collaborative teams. Your support will help make it possible for the student body to authentically reflect the broader community of Virginia.
Boundless Impact: Inclusion and Diversity Discussion
Moderated by President Tim Sands, listen as alumni Bruce Smith '85, Lynne Doughtie '85, and Aaron Rouse '07 give their thoughts on how to increase the number of underrepresented and underserved students, increase the diversity of our faculty, and provide the financial support that every accepted student needs. We can all make Virginia Tech a more inclusive community, a key priority as part of the university's Boundless Impact campaign.
Inspired. And inspiring.
