Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute

     

Our values at work

At Virginia Tech's Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC, we strive daily to do our part in creating a more just and welcoming world, in how we treat each other, how we open the doors of opportunity, and how we value our diverse work environment. We stand for justice and dignity for all people.

Center for Inclusion

Center for Inclusion

In the spirit of InclusiveVT and to demonstrate our commitment to Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), the Center for Inclusion is a partnership between the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine.

The Center is designed to be an inviting and inclusive space for all students, postdoctoral fellows, and residents, and is open to everyone on the campus. The Center is a place to have meetings or gatherings, to host discussions, to utilize resources, or to simply find quiet in between classes and research.

The Center for Inclusion is located in 1 Riverside on the second floor at 205B beside the Student Services office space.

  

Juneteenth Celebration of Black Scientists and Engineers

 

American colleges have been integrated for more than a half century – nearly 70 years in Virginia Tech’s case. Yet as of 2021, fewer than one in 10 jobs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in the United States was occupied by a Black person, according to the Pew Research Center.

On June 17, the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC hosted a day long recognition of Juneteenth featuring eight accomplished Black STEM professionals who discussed their journeys, their work, and the ongoing challenges and opportunities for people from underrepresented groups to enter careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
