Students gather for the annual Graduate School cookout, capping Graduate Education Week each spring at Virginia Tech

Graduate School administrators, faculty, and staff are committed to fostering an inclusive, vibrant community for Virginia Tech graduate students and their families. To help achieve that goal, and to find ways to improve, the Graduate School began conducting climate surveys in 2013, building on earlier work. The goal is to take the pulse of the community every three years, and to share the findings so we can move forward together. You'll find the 2013 and 2016 surveys on the following pages.
