The following is a university statement on Thursday's U.S. Supreme Court decision.

Virginia Tech leadership is reviewing the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court released this morning concerning consideration of race in college admissions. In the spirit of our motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), we remain committed to the mission of our land-grant institution – to offer a practical education to all members of the commonwealth, nation, and beyond. To accomplish this mission, we will continue to work hard to expand access to underserved and underrepresented populations. This commitment is critical to preparing students to pursue productive careers and advance economic development in service to their communities.
