Faculty and Staff Resources

The professional development section provides quick references to the many professional development resources located at Virginia Tech that may be useful for college faculty, staff, and students.

Work-Life Liaisons support the faculty recruitment efforts in each college by meeting individually with candidates to discuss Virginia Tech’s dual career resources, extend-the-tenure-clock policies, modified duties policies, commitment to diversity, community resources, and to refer candidates to appropriate resources for additional information. These meetings are confidential and separate from the formal search process.

The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences requires a work life liaison meeting for all tenure track and collegiate faculty searches.  Meetings are held in-person (with exceptions for Agricultural Research and Extension Centers) and typically last 30 minutes.

Meetings can be requested using the links below:
