Mission and History

The Multicultural Alumni Advisory Board engages Virginia Tech graduates in university efforts to strengthen its commitment to a diverse and inclusive community.

The board was established in January 2007 with the appointment of thirteen members. The aim of the advisory board is to represent the interest of multicultural alumni and student constituencies and to serve as ambassadors for Virginia Tech. The Multicultural Alumni Advisory Board works closely with the Virginia Tech Alumni Association and the InclusiveVT initiative to assist with diversity initiatives and to strengthen alumni programs, admissions programs, and general networking among alumni constituents.
