Hokie Collective

We are very excited to introduce the newly launched Hokie Collective opportunity for students!  

The Hokie Collective is an interdepartmental* program that provides ongoing opportunities for student education at the organization or individual level on topics related to actively caring for their community. These opportunities will help to increase one’s knowledge about the diverse experiences and perspectives of our Hokie community and build capacity to disrupt unjust systems and norms, build inclusive environments and communities, and lead effectively with care. The skills gained will help individuals be better able to identify concerns and provide support or step in when issues that impact one’s peers and community arise.   

Students can become an inaugural Hokie Collective Members in 2021 as an individual and/or as an organization by taking 2 of 10 amazing trainings offered this semester. Individuals can list membership on their resume to highlight their initiative to learn/support their community and organizations will be officially listed as Hokie Collective members through Student Engagement and Campus Life. Individuals and organizations will be able to join or renew their participation in 2021-2022 and each year after by engaging in 3 different trainings per academic year.  

You can read more about the program on the Hokie Collective Webpage
