University Committee on International Affairs (UCIA)

The University Committee on International Affairs (UCIA) acts in support of the Virginia Tech International Mission and the University Strategic Plan.  The international mission of Virginia Tech is to reflect through all activities of its tripartite mission (education, research, engagement) an appreciation of the significance of other cultures and languages and of global change and to address the environmental, political, economic, social, and technological challenges that confront communities across the globe.  UCIA is the direct voice of its constituencies to the Commission on Outreach and International Affairs (COIA).  It recommends policy to COIA and to the University Administration.
