Vice Provost Rachel Holloway and her team coordinate strategic initiatives to advance undergraduate education at Virginia Tech. The team works closely with college deans, associate deans, and other vice provosts to coordinate strategic initiatives to advance Virginia Tech’s undergraduate education profile.
Key offices, programs, and initiatives housed within undergraduate academic affairs include:
The undergraduate academic affairs team builds and uses partnerships with the colleges, divisions, programs, units, and leadership across campus as well as the surrounding community to enhance the undergraduate experience so students can engage, innovate, and explore.
The General Education team continues its efforts to work towards reform of the current Curriculum for Liberal Education.
In spring 2014, Director of University Honors Terry Papillon announced he would be leaving Virginia Tech to become dean of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. A national search will be conducted during the 2014-15 academic year for his replacement. Christina McIntyre, associate director of University Honors, will serve as interim director.
The Virginia Tech Student Experience Task Force is studying residential life, student centers, and dining and the role they will play at Virginia Tech in the future. The task force is co-chaired by Vice Provost for Undergraduate Academic Affairs Rachel Holloway.
