Myers-Lawson School of Construction

Leading the Way in Building Construction and Construction Engineering Management Education

The Virginia Tech Myers-Lawson School of Construction (MLSoC) has proven to be a national leader in the construction industry. Our curriculum prioritizes improving the safety and health of workers, smart design and construction, sustainable and human-centric built environments, and infrastructure management. Our unique positioning in both the College of Engineering and the College of Architecture and Urban Studies provides greater opportunities for collaboration and impactful research.

MLSoC strives to provide experiential learning opportunities for every student. We believe these experiences enhance student learning by providing practical exposure and involvement, ultimately differentiating our students as they enter the industry. This includes international service-learning projects, regional and national academic events like competitions, and distinctive industry engagement – namely work site visits. We can deliver these value-based initiatives with the support of our donors.

How You Can Help

Every gift matters and will impact our recruiting and experiential learning efforts to serve an industry in need of more professionals.  With your continued or first-time support, you can help fulfill our particular needs:

  • $20 helps cover costs for Zoom room technology to enhance experiential learning in hybrid environments.
  • $50 supports the development of recruitment materials (e.g. professional videos) to attract more students to pursue construction as a career of first-choice, most especially women and the underrepresented.
  • $100 aids in creating new, or enhance existing, scholarship funds.  Our students require more merit and need-based support to be successful.

Once you've made your gift, you can still spread the philanthropic spirit to your networks. Sign up here to be a Giving Day Ambassador for MLSoC and tell your friends why you wanted to give. You can maximize your impact by inspiring others to give, too.

We are grateful for your partnership and support. It matters!
