Non-endorsement statement

Most of VT Engage’s community partners are independent of Virginia Tech and do not necessarily represent the opinions or beliefs of our faculty, staff, or administration. We partner with organizations and individuals whose goals align with our mission, but hold a wide range of opinions on political, religious, and social issues. Therefore, students participating in our programs may find themselves in situations where their personal views come into conflict with those of others.

We encourage students to see these differences as an opportunity to better understand the perspectives and beliefs of others through dialogue and reflection. However, any student who feels threatened, unsafe, or unreasonably uncomfortable is encouraged to remove him or herself from the situation and alert a VT Engage program leader.
