Inclusion and Diversity

We're invested.

Boost inclusion and diversity through a meaningful investment with Virginia Tech.

Inclusion and diversity is more important than ever.

2020 marked Virginia Tech's most diverse freshman class in university history, this milestone reflects the importance of inclusion and diversity to Virginia Tech and the university's ability to deliver on stated priorities. 

A nationally ranked diversity champion, Virginia Tech strives to make a difference through InclusiveVT, the institutional and individual commitment to Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) in the spirit of community, diversity, and excellence. Our commitment to creating a more just and inclusive world, starting at Virginia Tech is the InclusiveVT Difference.

Never before has the imperative to support inclusion and diversity been greater. As the future of work changes and the digital economy advances every industry, addressing equity gaps will be vital. Virginia Tech’s land grant mission of service, our reach across the Commonwealth, and our program breadth put us in a perfect position to work hand-in-hand with industry partners like you that want to make a difference.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

Carlos Gil

I feel like there’s a lot I can do, especially as an electrical engineer, to help out with cleaner power for the environment... It helps tremendously knowing there are people out there that have so much confidence in me that they’re willing to help pay for my future.

A native Columbian, Carlos Gil was in the first cohort of Beyond Boundaries Scholars to enroll back in 2017. Now a senior, he is working toward a degree in electrical engineering with a focus on energy and power systems.

The Beyond Boundaries Scholars program doubles the impact of qualifying scholarship gifts that help underrepresented and high achieving students.

Our partnerships fit you.

We recognize that organizations have a range of short and long-term priorities and that there are many ways to advance diversity goals. We offer a broad portfolio of options: from faculty and student scholarships, to supporting research, to student success, there are many important paths to make an impact.

Together we maximize impact.

Our tiered structure helps us create mutually-beneficial strategies to achieve measurable outcomes, such as students impacted and research dollars deployed.
