Virginia Tech recognizes that meeting the needs of today’s professional couples is a key factor in recruiting and retaining new faculty. Many prospective candidates for faculty positions at Virginia Tech have spouses or partners who are also seeking employment. The Dual Career Program hopes to bring a new level of support to couples and their families when considering new employment opportunities within the university.

Program goals

  • Bring the best and brightest dual career couples to campus and to the Blacksburg, New River Valley, and Roanoke Valley Communities.
  • Enhance Virginia Tech’s commitment to diversity, inclusion and retention of talent.
  • Provide personalized assistance to new faculty spouses and partners in their job search.
  • Engage employers of the New River Valley/Roanoke Valley communities to support this program and hire candidates of the Dual Career Program.
