Cultural and Community Centers are important spaces for  Virginia Tech.  Research affirms three main goals of effective cultural centers in US Higher Education:

  • There is a strong relationship between levels of campus comfort and retaining students of color;​

  • Cultural-specific, multicultural and intercultural centers offer opportunities for scholarship, research, and faculty enrichment in areas of race, culture and ethnicity across all disciplines; and​

  • Cultural centers represent a major way to improve campus race relations by generating a wealth of lectures, dialogues, and exhibits that are useful in educating the campus community.​
