The Global Change Center differentiates Virginia Tech from our academic peer institutions and has helped recruit dozens of top faculty and Ph.D. students to Virginia Tech from around the world.
By fostering a campus-wide community and the development of new research teams from diverse disciplines, the Center has helped faculty increase their external research funding by nearly $78.7 million USD since its founding in 2015.
With research expertise spanning diverse disciplines, our faculty and students strive to translate our research into tangible benefits and solutions such as improved access to clean water, control of invasive species, recovery of endangered wildlife, accurate communication of the best available science to the public, and improvements to policies that benefit both society and the environment.
