We support Virginia Tech's mission of research, education and outreach.


The Virginia Tech Institute for Policy and Governance is actively involved in empirical and theoretical research, and supports sponsored research endeavors for the School of Public and International Affairs. We engage in research, capacity building, technical assistance and community-based participatory inquiry with and on behalf of those we serve, principally public, nonprofit and private organizations, and the  populations and communities these entities support.
