A statement from Dean Laura Belmonte

As a student organization and a representative of Virginia Tech, we must not stand silent or neutral in the face of racial discrimination that affects the lives of many in our band, the Virginia Tech community, and the musical world.  We condemn any acts of disrespect or hatred towards a person’s skin color, gender identity, sexual orientation, or any other distinguishing feature, and fully support the black community. As a band, we will continue our spirit of Ut Prosim as we strive towards a society free of racism, prejudice, and discrimination. We will work hard to ensure an inclusive atmosphere and an incredible experience for all involved in The Marching Virginians this fall and beyond.
