Global Safety

As a global land-grant university, Virginia Tech is committed to improving the human condition worldwide and educating students who will understand their connection to fellow humans everywhere and excel at working collaboratively on solutions to global problems.
For this reason, we believe deeply in the value of international education experiences for our students, opportunities for them to connect with and learn from cultures beyond our own boundaries.
The health, safety, and wellness of our students, faculty, and staff is of utmost importance. As such, policies and procedures are established to promote the health, safety, and security of members of the university community (employees, students, dependents, and guests) traveling outside of the United States for university-supported purposes.
