Virginia Tech Giving Day 2022
Inclusion and Diversity

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.


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.

Ensure opportunity with your gift

Now is the time. To dream big. To act boldly. To give generously. Support the InclusiveVT Student Excellence Fund today.
