Explore what Ut Prosim and leadership mean to you with VT Engage
We offer a variety of ways to get engaged in local, regional, and global communities. Whether you want to serve a couple hours on a Campus Kitchen shift, spend a half day or day with us on a Get on the Bus trip, or go on an adventure for three weeks in Peru, we have something for you. All undergraduate and graduate students of any major are welcome to sign up for our trips.

VT Engage’s community partners are independent of Virginia Tech and do not 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.
