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 on-going efforts to increase access and inclusion and to create a community that nurtures learning and growth for all of its members.
The Office for Diversity and Inclusion envisions a university committed to building a community of excellence through the affirmation of difference.
The task force, convened in October 2006, is examining issues of race and racism at Virginia Tech, with a goal of identifying key issues and proposing specific actions that will enhance our opportunities to make lasting progress.
