Our Alumni Association

A DYNAMIC ALUMNI ASSOCIATION SERVING VIRGINIA TECH
The Virginia Tech Alumni Association is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that was founded in the third year of the early VAMC college’s history. The first alumni received three-year certificates in 1875. Later baccalaureate degrees were awarded. The Association was completely volunteer-led until 1926, when an Alumni Secretary was appointed as its first full-time staff member. From the early tradition of volunteer participation by alumni, the Association today engages hundreds of volunteers in service to the university and alumni through many avenues of programming and service. An Alumni Board of Directors of 30 lay-members serve in an advisory capacity to the university’s alumni relations programs. The Board provides valuable advice and support to an Alumni Relations staff and many program areas that serve and engage alumni.

An updated Strategic Plan was adopted by the Alumni Board of Directors in 2006 that emphasizes the commitment of the Alumni Association to serve and involve alumni in the life of the university. Through this involvement, Virginia Tech will continue to grow stronger and better serve its students and the greater society it attempts to serve. With alumni invested in the university’s missions of learning, discovery and engagement, Virginia Tech’s light will shine even more brightly in the years to come.

The Alumni Board’s strategic plan outlines the Association’s mission and purpose, its vision, its principles and core values, and its strategic directions. Each of these statements embodies the belief that alumni are a key component in the continued success of the university as a leading institution of higher education that they helped shape.
