Virginia Tech's College Access Collaborative formed in summer 2016 to strengthen the university’s existing commitment to increase access to higher education.

Currently, Virginia Tech serves the Commonwealth of Virginia by partnering with communities that typically graduate a lower number of college-bound high school students. The collaborative’s outreach efforts will be led by a newly created organizational unit with dedicated personnel and resources that will leverage current efforts and form new partnerships across the state.

The collaborative will begin implementing programs incrementally across Virginia in some of its underserved communities, particularly inner cities and rural areas. Partnerships will involve a multipronged approach to provide support, outreach, and resources to students, parents, teachers, and counselors within identified schools. Services and activities will include seminars and advising on college preparation, teacher and counselor professional development workshops and mentorship, and student and parent visits to Virginia Tech, among others.
