University Relations

The Office of University Relations supports the university’s mission and goals by promoting public understanding of and support for Virginia Tech, disseminating useful information affecting Virginians, and providing the university with a wide range of communications expertise and services.

One of the most important ways employees interact with University Relations is via Virginia Tech News.

  • Employees are automatically signed up for the Daily Email, which is delivered overnight, on Monday through Friday, and includes the latest news, campus notices, events, and Blacksburg weather forecast, with extensive links to the Virginia Tech News website for detailed coverage.
  • For the approximate 300 university employees who do not normally have computer access during the workday, Virginia Tech News also offers a hard copy weekly newsletter version called the "Blue Sheet."
