A MESSAGE FROM DR. MENAH PRATT-CLARKE, VICE PRESIDENT FOR STRATEGIC AFFAIRS AND DIVERSITY:

The Office for Strategic Affairs plays an integral role at Virginia Tech in strategic and continuous planning and the exploration of Virginia Tech’s history.

Building upon Beyond Boundaries, the Office for Strategic Affairs collaborates with the Virginia Tech community to understand challenges and opportunities, guide strategic and continuous planning, and help advance the university through feasible, measurable, and sustainable objectives.

The Office for Strategic Affairs also leads the Council on Virginia Tech History to explore how Virginia Tech recognizes and acknowledges its history in the context of today. As part of this process, the Council engages with the university community to document Virginia Tech’s history and its connection to the histories of the Commonwealth of Virginia and the nation.
