Virginia Tech students will enrich their lives through service to others.


The university motto, Ut Prosim – (That I May Serve), and the Principles of Community will stand as a foundation for the development of personal relationships, physical spaces, and intercultural experiences, which create communities. These communities compel students to understand and develop a value system that will guide their decisions and enable them to offer themselves as responsible citizens of the world.


Ut Prosim Key

When do I serve without recognition?

Is the principal purpose of my education to make a better life for myself or a better world for others?
