Cancelled: The Summer Institute 2020

A Holistic Approach to Understanding and Educating Our Students
May 19-20, 2020
New Classroom Building, Virginia Tech

Due to the precautions to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 infection and comply with university, state, and federal policy regarding social distancing, we must cancel the 2020 Summer Institute that was scheduled May 19-20.  

We look forward to hosting you in 2021.

- The Summer Institute Team

The 2020 Summer Institute will examine how recognizing all dimensions of a person can lead to greater persistence and success—for the student, faculty member, and University. In this spirit, Academic Affairs joins with Student Affairs to present two days of practical sessions to help us understand student challenges, care for ourselves, and ultimately, create better outcomes from our efforts.
