Building excellence through diversity
Increasing diversity is more than a call to action at Virginia Tech. It’s a path to better learning and stronger outcomes for all. We value the differences in people. We continually expand our knowledge by building a community of excellence. The InclusiveVT Excellence Scholarship Fund is an important part of these efforts.
“Gifts to the InclusiveVT Excellence Scholarship Fund lower barriers to access and raise the caliber of education at Virginia Tech.”
Greta Harris '83, Board of Visitors member and scholarship donor
A strategic priority
By 2022, Virginia Tech aims to more than double the number of students from underrepresented minority groups. Scholarships are one powerful way to help us reach this goal. Additional initiatives to ensure an inclusive community include:
- Encouraging dialogue through our Unfinished Conversations Series and other discussions that build community.
- Engaging alumni through InclusiveVT Project 2022 to help recruit underrepresented students to our university.
- Introducing an online diversity-education module to be completed by all first-year students.
- Opening additional cultural and resource centers.
