Commitment to Inclusion and Diversity
The Office for Strategic Affairs' Commitment to Inclusion and Diversity
The Office for Strategic Affairs anchors our actions in Virginia Tech’s Principles of Community, fosters an environment shaped by our core values, and embodies our institution’s motto of Ut Prosim (That I May Serve). We collaborate with the Virginia Tech community and report to the Office of the President. Dr. Menah Pratt, vice president for strategic affairs and diversity, also leads the diversity and inclusion efforts at the university.
Resources for the Community
Several resources are available to the community as we navigate this pivotal moment and chart our course forward.
- Statement from President Sands and Vice President for Strategic Affairs and Diversity Pratt on steps we can take to ensure a just and equitable learning community.
- The university’s strategic plan, The Virginia Tech Difference: Advancing Beyond Boundaries, details our strategic priorities, documents college, institute, office and unit strategic plans, and offers a public dashboard on our progress.
- The Council on Virginia Tech History examines our histories and seeks to highlight how historically marginalized communities have shaped and continue to shape the university. The Council issued a Call for Public Art to bring these stories to life.
- VT Stories collects and examines stories and memories of the Hokie community to help us know our shared history and to make sense of it.
Join us in conversation, in the work we do, and the community we serve.
