Hokies Abroad program seeks faculty support

Spectrum Volume 19 Issue 03 - September 12, 1996

The Hokies Abroad initiative provides an opportunity to link faculty members traveling abroad to alumni who live abroad. In conjunction with and under the sponsorship of the Alumni Association, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and the University Office of International Programs, the Hokies Abroad program encompasses the involvement of traveling faculty in contacting Virginia Tech alumni abroad, promoting the university's interests, generating new international undergraduate enrollments, and building support for alumni relations world-wide.

Faculty participants may be asked to make presentations, attend alumni-sponsored receptions, and to distribute current information on the university. They may also be asked to speak with interested international students.

Faculty members who are willing to assist in the program should notify the Alumni Association as early as possible-three months before the date of travel is optimal. The Alumni Association can then contact Tech alumni living in these areas to arrange for meetings and/or discussions. For more information, contact Lynn Young in Alumni Relations at youngl@vt.edu or 1-4009.
