Affirmative Action

Affirmative Action provides oversight of university affirmative action efforts and works in concert with departments to ensure adherence to equal opportunity principles as they relate to the search and selection of faculty. 

Virginia Tech has a strong commitment to the principles of inclusion, diversity, and to maintaining a work and learning environment that is free of all forms of discrimination. View the Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Statement.

Additionally, as a recipient of federal grants and contracts Virginia Tech must maintain an affirmative action program and a written affirmative action plan as required by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)

The resources and materials available in this section are provided to assist you in fulfilling the university’s commitment to equity and affirmative action.
