Dear Virginia Tech students and community,

Today we continue to experience the cumulative impact of the events in New York, New Jersey, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and North Carolina. It’s possible that many in our community are deeply impacted by these events and may continue to experience a range of emotions. It is so important that we remember to take good care of ourselves and of one another. The Intercultural Engagement Center (IEC) would like to remind you that the cultural centers are here for us to be in community and the IEC team is here to lend an ear, or a hand.

We invite you to be in community with us and VT faculty on Thursday, September 22 between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. You can find community in the centers in the following locations:

  • American Indian & Indigenous Community Center – Cardinal Room, 1st floor of Squires
  • Black Cultural Center – 125 Squires
  • Hispanic Latino Cultural Center – 309 Squires
  • LGBTQ+ Center – 312 Squires
  • Multicultural Center – 140 Squires
  • Intercultural Engagement Center (main office suite) – 150 Squires

You may also find support through accessing the Dean of Students page: Students can find support in Student Advocacy (109 E Egg), Cook Counseling (McComas), through your on-campus residence, myriad places of worship and faith. Faculty and staff may seek support through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

We also encourage you to engage in the myriad opportunities already underway to increase dialogue and cultural understanding. Some of these upcoming events include:

And find additional resources and events on our Facebook page:  and by using the “diversity” tag to filter events on Gobblerconnect.

Please reach out to check in with classmates, friends, and colleagues. Be in community. And let us know how we can support.

Be well,
