Policies and Handbooks for Employees

Virginia Tech employs approximately 13,000 faculty and staff located at the main campus in Blacksburg, Va., as well as those at off-campus educational facilities in six regions, a study-abroad site in Switzerland, and a 1,700-acre agriculture research farm near the main campus.


Faculty includes those working in teaching and research faculty (T&R), research faculty, adjunct teaching faculty, and administrative and professional (A/P) faculty positions.


Staff (classified and university) includes those working in wage, student wage, emergency hire, and sporadic positions, among others. All new salaried non-faculty staff, including transfers from other state agencies, hired on or after July 1, 2006 are university staff. Classified staff hired prior to July 1, 2006, who have not elected to convert to university staff, will remain classified staff even if they receive transfers or promotions to other Virginia Tech staff positions.


All wage employees (regardless of hire date) are covered under University Human Resources policies.
