Archived Hokie Talk: Virginia Tech’s COVID-19 Response: Science and Engineering in Service to Community Health
“Thank you for the invitation for the program this evening . It was very well done. I was surprised when my chat room comment to the panelists – on the great success across disciplines and the need to share with students as an example of not working in silos – was used to close the meeting. One of the greatest challenges a leader faces is connecting the dots across internal and external entities and the team clearly nailed it!”
– Mark Salyer '81, MBA, CPA
