The Virginia Tech Athletics Office of Student-Athlete Development supports student development initiatives in an effort to enhance the quality of the student-athlete experience within the university setting. The mission of the Office of Student-Athlete Development is to:
Support efforts of every student-athlete toward intellectual development and graduation.
Inspired by the NCAA Student-Athlete Affairs commitment areas, the Athletics Office of Student-Athlete Development creates programs designed to enhance student-athletes in five areas: athletic excellence, academic excellence, personal and leadership development, and community outreach and career development. The program has been previously honored for its commitment to serving the good of the student-athletes by the Division I-A Athletic Director's Association as a program of excellence.
