What's InclusiveVT?

“InclusiveVT is the institutional and individual commitment to Ut Prosim (that I may serve) in the spirit of community, diversity, and excellence.”


Framework 3.0

InclusiveVT’s Four Institutional Goals

  • Institutionalizing structures to promote a sustainable transformation
  • Increasing faculty, staff, and student diversity
  • Ensuring a welcoming, affirming, safe, and accessible campus climate

The President’s InclusiveVT Executive Council guides the development of InclusiveVT and ensures that responsibility for inclusion and diversity is infused throughout Virginia Tech.
