Strong Together Initiative

The Strong Together Initiative is a new campus-wide effort to promote the values set forth in the Virginia Tech Principles of Community. The Strong Together Initiative will include a variety of programming and promotional efforts geared toward raising awareness and facilitating actions that reflect the values of the Principles of Community among students, staff, and faculty.

How you can get involved:

Support our Social Media efforts

Like our Strong Together – Principles of Community Facebook page and watch for postings on upcoming events.

Submit pictures, videos and reflections of your Strong Together moments or events to If you or your group has made a connection with someone from a background or perspective different than your own, both individuals or groups can submit a picture and joint reflection on what they gained from that experience.  We want to hear from both perspectives and share what each person or group gained from the connection.

Spread the Word

Strong Together shirts are available at the University Bookstore, which is a nonprofit corporation that returns all profits to Virginia Tech for student related scholarships and improvements.
