Virginia Tech Giving Day 2022
College of Science

The College of Science is a pillar of research and education at Virginia Tech, with more 4,900 students. Our faculty and staff teach an estimated 248,000 credit hours each year, more than any other College. And those students who take our core science classes work and thrive and lead across Virginia Tech, in engineering, veterinary medicine, environmental science, and more. In recent years, our alumni have become a force in both the academic and corporate worlds, with 73,000 College of Science graduates helping discover previously unknown phenomenon, scaling the ever-enlarging world of big data, breaking new ground in neurosciences and the inner workings of the brain.

The dedication of faculty and staff shows every day. You, our alumni, know this. And so does the university. In 2016, our Department of Biological Sciences, Department of Chemistry, and Department of Physics each won a Virginia Tech Exemplary Department Award, for their efforts in effective large classroom instruction. And just a few weeks ago, our Department of Geosciences captured the Exemplary Department Award for 2017, the award honoring its teaching and research efforts on the undergraduate and graduate levels, and for its outreach and engagement with the public.

Giving to the College of Science makes a tremendous difference for students in our eight core departments, and our Academy of Integrated Science and School of Neuroscience. Please consider making a gift today of any amount - or becoming a Giving Day Ambassador for the College of Science. With your support, the college can continue to grow as a place where present and future science leaders discover, create, inspire, and inform.
