The Office for Inclusion & Diversity, the Cultural and Community Centers, UJIMA, and SOAR condemns the recent acts of violence and chaos in our nation.

We seek common, peaceful ground, not hostility or conflict.  We adhere to our Principles of Community and the core values of our democratic nation, such as human decency and equal rights. As educators, we commit ourselves to promoting these values on our campus and in our communities.

We are dedicated to InclusiveVT, our institutional and individual commitment to Ut Prosim (that I may serve) in the spirit of community, diversity, and excellence.

We join President Sands and support his statement, and challenge everyone to also join us in our firm stance against injustice.

Virginia Tech's Office for Inclusion & Diversity stands in solidarity and in support with the HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) community in light of the recent bomb threats.
These acts are inhumane and are reminders of the ongoing threats to the Black community and continued presence of racism.
As we celebrate Black History month, we must continue to honor and remember those important people and events in history who have made tremendous contributions to the fabric of our nation.
We continue to affirm our commitment to Virginia Tech's Principles of Community and motto - Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) which articulates the values that bring us to life on our campus and beyond. We demonstrate our commitment to Ut Prosim in the spirit of community, diversity, and excellence through InclusiveVT.

Resisting Xenophobia and Showing Support for Asian Pacific Islander Desi Americans (APIDA)

Since the start of COVID-19, there have been over 3900 documented anti-Asian hate crimes—an increase of 1900%.  As educators, it is our responsibility to resist false narratives that fuel xenophobic crimes and to decolonize thinking that props up model minority and orientalist stereotypes. As educators, it is our responsibility--collectively and individually--to reflect, read, learn, and act toward justice, and to understand the intersections of identities that shape our lived experiences.

     InclusiveVT Conversations


Making the Chair Fit

The series is an entertaining and informational look at many of the people and programs that are dedicated to serving underrepresented and underserved students, as well as faculty and staff.

Unfinished Conversation

We are dedicated to adhering to and promoting our institutional and individual commitment to Ut Prosim (that I may serve) in the spirit of community, diversity, and excellence. We affirm our conviction that racism has no place in our institution. We invite members of our campus community and those interested, to join this important and much needed conversation.


At Virginia Tech, Juneteenth is an opportunity to deepen knowledge around our shared history so that we may advocate for narratives that have been erased or forgotten.
