Doubling our Endowment by 2022

The endowment offers financial resilience and the opportunity to supplement core funding for the purpose of enhancing programmatic excellence and recruiting and retaining faculty and student talent. Virginia Tech’s endowment just surpassed $1 billion, well on its way to the milestone of $1.6 billion in 2022, but it is small on a per-student basis compared to peers. For example, the University of Virginia’s per-student endowment is about 10 times greater than Virginia Tech’s.
