Much of our work in our engagement mission involves curriculum, program development, and implementation through the work of our partners and colleagues throughout Virginia and beyond. Examples of existing programs related to the university’s engagement mission include:
Virginia Governor’s School for Agriculture
The Virginia Summer Residential Governor's School for Agriculture at Virginia Tech provides academically rigorous educational enhancement for future scientists and leaders of Virginia, the United States, and the world. GSA students interact with and learn directly from internationally known teachers, scientists, and researchers from Tech. Students attending the Virginia Summer Residential GSA at Tech are selected from the top juniors and seniors from the commonwealth's public, private, and homeschools.
Team Ag Ed
The department provides leadership for the various professional organizations that coordinate agricultural education in Virginia. Activities include professional development programming for educators and leadership development for youth.
