Mission Statement

The Advising Center of the College of Natural Resources and Environment serves our students and their parents, as well as the faculty and staff of the College. We support students from their first interaction throughout their time at Virginia Tech as they develop and pursue their academic and career goals. Our holistic approach to advising empowers students to take ownership of the decision-making process as they become independent problem solvers who invent the future.
