Changes at Virginia Tech and in higher education provide an opportunity for Pamplin to exceed its past achievements. The college must seize this opportunity to raise the aspirations and expectations of alumni, faculty, staff, and students.

– Robert T. Sumichrast, Pamplin Dean

Pamplin is a nationally recognized, integral part of Virginia Tech – the premier research university of the Commonwealth. Changes at Virginia Tech and in higher education provide an opportunity for Pamplin to refine its mission and secure a more prominent role in the university’s future. The college must seize this opportunity to raise the aspirations and expectations of alumni, faculty, staff and students.

The vision, mission, and plan by which Pamplin will advance and achieve greater national and international prominence are described in the Full  Strategic Plan. Companion documents, the Implementation Plan, scorecards, and the three-year plan being developed for the provost beginning in summer 2016, provide more details including quantitative goals and estimated costs.

Progress toward these goals will be reviewed at least every two years. Over the course of this plan, we will monitor changing conditions and opportunities, and when appropriate, revise our direction.
