Welcome from our Director
Our Alumni are our inspiration. You embody Virginia Tech’s Core Values and our motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve). As Hokies, we are called into action through service to others, educational excellence, applied research, and advocacy. Together, we are striving to make the world a better place.
As a graduate of the Virginia Tech School of Education, you are part of an esteemed group of more than 20,000 alumni. Individually and collectively, you are contributing to the fields of education, counseling and mental health, and higher education, serving in a range of public, private, and non-profit organizations.
The VT School of Education prides itself on its world-class faculty, innovative programs, and rigorous research that place equity and excellence at the fore of all we do. You advance and promote the work of our School through your ongoing commitment to the education and well-being of children and youth, families and communities, and individuals across the life-span.
We would love to learn more about your many contributions and hope you’ll update your Alumni Profile so we may stay in touch with you. Perhaps you’d like to recognize a fellow alum, an SOE faculty or staff member, or nominate yourself for an alumni award? Or maybe you would like to share a story for our alumni newsletter or social media outlets? Whatever the case may be, we hope you’ll stay in touch and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn where we share current events and the accomplishments of our faculty, students, staff, and alumni. If you’re not already receiving it, please subscribe to our SOE Alumni Newsletter.
We hope you’ll join us in reimaging the future and making a difference in the lives of people each and every day! #HokieEducators #ThisIsHome
