President Tim Sands

Welcome to Virginia Tech. We are a contemporary, global land-grant research university dedicated to discovery, innovation, experiential learning, and service to humanity. We believe in the power of education to improve the lives of our students, their families, and communities across our country and the world.

We are known for our spirit of community, an increasingly rich diversity of human experiences, and the drive to turn discovery into action.  Our living motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), is woven through everything we do to harness our students’ passions, develop their strengths, and prepare them for a life and career of impactful service to humanity.

If this is your first time visiting online, I hope you take a few moments to learn more about us and visit our campus in Blacksburg and our other locations in Virginia. I think you will come to appreciate this remarkable university community as Laura and I do. If you are already a member of the Hokie Nation, thank you for your ongoing engagement and support. Together, we are shaping the future of higher education.
