About

Virginia Tech celebrated 50 years of graduate education in the National Capital Region in 2019. Over that period of time, the university’s presence has expanded to seven campuses, with program offerings from five colleges serving almost 800 master’s degree and Ph.D. students at seven area locations. And with the recent announcement of the new Innovation Campus in Alexandria and our partnership with Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., the future of our academic and research presence in what is now known as the greater Washington, D.C. metro area continues to remain full of promise.

Background

Relying on the findings and recommendations of the NCR Enterprise Working Group efforts that concluded in 2018 and in order to prepare for new buildings, support new and existing programs, and respond to expected enrollment growth, a new organizational approach is needed. Virginia Tech is committed to better coordinate our academic and administrative activities in cohesive, integrated, and effective ways so that we are positioned to deliver our faculty, students, and staff with the highest quality services possible. As such, a number of initiatives are already underway to achieve this.
