Intensive English Program students at the Virginia Tech Blacksburg campus
In this article, Insight Into Diversity magazine recognized Virginia Tech as one of 10 Diversity Champion colleges and universities. According to the magazine, "Diversity Champions, (who are known for visionary leadership,) are institutions that set the standard for thousands of other campus communities striving for diversity and inclusion. They develop successful strategies and programs, which then serve as models of excellence for other institutions. Diversity Champion schools exceed everyday expectations, often eclipsing their own goals."
From Virginia Tech News:
“We are honored to receive this award, reflecting a commitment by the university to build a community where all feel welcome and supported,” said Virginia Tech President Tim Sands. “Just two years ago, we launched InclusiveVT as a strategic way to advance inclusion and diversity efforts on this campus, building on our long-held Principles of Community and motto of service, Ut Prosim. This recognition is a reflection of the hard work of our faculty, staff, and students to continuously improve our community.”
