What is Virginia Tech Experts?

Welcome to Virginia Tech Experts: Advancing Our Global Land-Grant Mission

Virginia Tech Experts is a searchable public profile system of faculty and graduate student profiles, publications, teaching, professional activities, and more. You can search profiles by keyword or leave the search box blank and select 'Search' to browse profiles, and to see filtering options. For example, you can filter profiles by Unit / Department, by Availability to engage in activities such as: mentor graduate students, provide expert commentary, collaborate on research, speak on a panel, and more. You can also filter profiles by subject tags.

Virginia Tech Experts supports identifying potential collaborators and discovery of research, scholarship, creative works, and areas of specialization and expertise across disciplines.
