Virginia Tech partners with Facebook

Local News

Virginia Tech is partnering with a fortune 500 company to help with research.

Virginia Tech is one of seventeen institutions which will partner with Facebook in a sponsored academic research agreement.

Facebook will be able to come to to the university with problems and ask for solutions.

Virginia Tech officials say it’s a great way for partnerships to grow outside of the academic world.

“These  partnerships are a two way recognition of our strengths and our desire to help make a difference in society again that is what our mission is really all about,” said Mark Owczarski, Virginia Tech Spokesperson.

Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, and Georgia Tech are other universities included in a partnership with Facebook.
