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.
University governance has approved both the Pathways to General Education curriculum (April 2015) and implementation plan (April 2016). Now, the General Education team is focusing its efforts on implementation, with Pathways set to replace the current Curriculum for Liberal Education for new students entering in fall 2018.
In March 2016, the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors approved changes to the Undergraduate Honor Code that emphasizes academic integrity as a learning process, not just a system of punishments for violations.
The Undergraduate Academic Integrity team coordinated revision efforts and are now working to implement the changes across campus.
