  • Dean of Students Reporting System – This is not a system to use for emergencies.
    Faculty and staff members are encouraged to share concern for a student with the Dean of Students Office, enabling a more complete profile of the student in distress. The system is in place as one more available tool to report a concern. Phone calls to the Dean of Students Office are still welcomed and encouraged. As always, matters needing immediate attention should be directed to the Virginia Tech Police Department at 540-231-6411.

    Faculty Access: The Dean of Students Reporting System is available within the Hokie SPA/Faculty Access Menu. Faculty members have the ability to report a concern for any student assigned to them, either enrolled in a course or as an advisee.

    Staff Access: Deans, department heads, and directors are strongly encouraged to identify critical staff members who they wish to have access to the Dean of Students reporting system. Deans, department heads, and directors will need to send an email to dean.students@vt.edu with the name of the critical staff member they wish to have registered for the reporting system.

  • Threat Assessment – The mission of the Threat Assessment Team is to determine if an individual poses, or may reasonably pose, a threat of violence to self, others, or the Virginia Tech community and to intervene to avert the thread and maintain the safety of the situation. Acts of intolerance require a response that asks all members of our community to uphold our shared values as outlined in the Virginia Tech Principles of Community. Since incidents often fall beyond the reach of policy and laws, it is imperative that we respond as a unified community to denounce such behavior. 
  • Diversity at Virginia Tech – The Office for Diversity and Inclusion envisions a university committed to building a community of excellence through the affirmation of difference.
  • Division of Student Affairs – Student Affairs professionals are committed to the holistic development of the Virginia Tech student experience, from orientation to graduation day. Students interact with student affairs staff from a variety of departments such as Housing and Residence Life, Dining Services, Schiffert Health Center, Cook Counseling Center, and Student Engagement and Campus Life.
