It all starts with a question.

Research takes many forms in our college. From poetry to data analytics, from cinema production to marriage and family counseling, from African history to fashion design, our strength lies in our breadth and depth. Our passionate faculty members earn substantial external funding to write, research, publish, and perform. In keeping with our motto Ut Prosim, they share their work with the world.

STUDENT RESEARCH

Chloé Benner, Classics Major '14

Chloé Benner initiated an after-school program at Gilbert Linkous Elementary School in Blacksburg that combined Latin with mythology and art. As students learned about the 12 labors of Hercules, they illustrated the stories on a long roll of paper. This approach, Benner said, not only serves to span the kindergarten-to-grade 5 age gap but also provides an artistic outlet that can be scrolled, like a movie, to an audience.
