Connecting Virginia Tech and the world

Our role as a global land-grant university is to make education and research portable, so that our students and faculty members can work and learn anywhere in the world. We enhance the impact of our research by supporting scholarship, promoting collaboration across disciplines, and lowering the barriers to global partnerships.
