Virginia Tech President Tim Sands will deliver his first State of the University Address on Friday, Sept. 30, at the Moss Arts Center.

Doors will open at 3 p.m. in the Anne and Ellen Fife Theatre, located within the Moss Arts Center’s Street and Davis Performance Hall at 190 Alumni Mall. A student performance will precede the address, and a community reception will follow on the lawn outside the Moss Arts Center.

The event is free and open to the public, and the Virginia Tech community is encouraged to attend. The university will livestream the event so that students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni located outside Blacksburg can participate.

During his address, Sands will reflect on the issues, events, and accomplishments of the previous school year, and share his thoughts, ideas, and vision for the university in the current academic year.

Additional information on the State of the University Address will be shared through Virginia Tech News emails, the event website, and social media channels as the date approaches.

Parking is available in the North End Parking Garage on Turner Street. Virginia Tech faculty and staff possessing a valid Virginia Tech parking permit can enter and exit the garage free of charge. Limited street parking is also available.
