VT News Contacts

University Relations' News and Information group is a network of professional communicators located across campus. The team also produces Virginia Tech News, a Web-based and email news service, and works to build stronger relationships between the university and local and national reporters.

Virginia Tech News is a daily service of the Office of University Relations to inform student, faculty, staff, parents, alumni, and the broader community of current campus news and events. In addition to this website, one may subscribe to our morning news email, sent daily Monday through Friday throughout the year. We welcome your feedback on Virginia Tech News. Please contact us at
