Upholding InclusiveVT, the institutional and individual commitment to the Virginia Tech motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), the office seeks to create a more just and inclusive community that welcomes, encourages, and supports individuals who desire to contribute to and benefit from the institution’s missions of learning, discovery, and engagement.
