A new initiative at Virginia Tech is aimed at recruiting more Native students, by building on an older program.

In a press release, Virginia Tech stated that admissions has targeted talented African American and Hispanic high school students, and now is working to develop more robust, lasting relationships with the Indigenous communities that call Virginia home.

The Virginia Tribal Initiative is the newest effort to recruit more Native students, building on an older program, Virginia Indians Pre-college Outreach Initiative (VIPCOI), the press release said. As part of the initiative, the university is leveraging recent alumni to assist in the effort.
