Virginia Tech has embraced a new organizational model entitled InclusiveVT to provide the “scaffold” for “success in distinguishing Virginia Tech as the exemplar for the modern land-grant research university” that includes “a bold and reinvigorated inclusion agenda.” – President Timothy Sands
InclusiveVT, a framework that creates active, intentional engagement of Virginia Tech communities in efforts and initiatives that advance inclusion at Virginia Tech, was adopted in July 2014 by President Timothy Sands. This new approach is led by the President’s Inclusion and Diversity Executive Council, the Inclusion Coordinators, the Advisory Community and the Senior Advisor to the President and Vice Provost for Inclusion and Diversity. InclusiveVT includes the affirmation of the campus’ Principles of Community, the Strong Together message and the Diversity Strategic Plan.
