The Virginia Tech Alumni Association strives to increase diversity involvement on boards and committees, with alumni chapters and within broader university programming and initiatives. Many alumni express a specific interest in diversity initiatives and information, regarding Virginia Tech. Strong Together events are designed in partnership with alumni chapters, to engage underrepresented alumni, while updating all graduates on alumni diversity initiatives which reflect the values of the Principles of Community.  We invite all alumni to join us at these fun and informative regional networking receptions.
