Through its teaching, research, service, and outreach missions, the Virginia Tech English Department promotes the study of language and literature in all its forms. Underlying our mission is the recognition that individuals and societies create and transform themselves in and through language—that language is the primary means by which all people express themselves, make sense of the world, frame questions, deepen understanding, cultivate aesthetic awareness, solve problems, and take action.
