Virginia Tech Principles of Community
Virginia Tech is a public land-grant university committed to teaching and learning, research, and outreach to the Commonwealth of Virginia, the nation, and the world community. Learning from the experiences that shape Virginia Tech as an institution, we acknowledge those aspects of our legacy that reflected bias and exclusion.
Therefore, we adopt and practice our Principles of Community as fundamental to our ongoing efforts to increase access and inclusion and to create a community that nurtures learning and growth for all of its members.
