The land grant mission commits Virginia Tech to research and discovery that serve the public good of the community, the commonwealth, the nation, and global society. Advancing the land grant mission in creating tomorrow’s knowledge connects the most advanced fields of inquiry with the obligation to transform this knowledge into practical, aesthetic, social, and commercial applications that serve the public good. As a modern land grant university, Virginia Tech must seek to expand its research activities nationally and internationally, to capitalize on the success of traditional land grant research and to broaden Virginia Tech’s portfolio in a range of research areas such as business, the social sciences, health sciences, and science policy, to highlight a few examples.
