On Oct. 11, the university launched a comprehensive fundraising and engagement campaign, Boundless Impact: The Campaign for Virginia Tech, with events that day and weekend that included a celebration at the Moss Arts Center, concerts on the Drillfield, campus tours, faculty-presented “Hokie Talks,” and football.
As the university opened its doors to celebrate the results of its efforts to advance its modern land-grant mission around the state, nation, and world, alumni and friends came back to reconnect with the campus they love, see how it has grown, and participate in the experience with fellow Hokies.
At the same time, the Pamplin College of Business hosted the inaugural Pamplin Engagement Summit. The event brought together its senior volunteer leaders — members of all 20 Pamplin advisory boards — to discuss the future of alumni engagement with the college through volunteerism, experiential opportunities, and philanthropy, as it seeks to transform business education to meet the needs of the 21st century.
The spring 2020 Virginia Tech Business magazine will include a special focus on the Pamplin Engagement Summit.
