Vibrant Virginia

Vibrant Virginia

Virginia Tech is committed to helping bridge divides and advance broad prosperity across our state. The university has established the Council on Vibrant Virginia to champion and guide this work. The Vibrant Virginia initiative encourages university involvement in community problem-solving through place-based collaborations, focusing on pressing community challenges.

Vibrant Virginia's Vision:

To encourage vibrant and flourishing places in every part of the Commonwealth.

We carry out this vision through the following:

Growing and supporting a broad network of university faculty, student, and community practitioners, and researchers.

Sharing stories, scholarship, and resources related to the Vibrant Virginia work. 

Developing ongoing relationships in a place, with an anchor partner, around a particular theme or question.  Each place-based exploratory may generate multiple projects.
