International Research

With Virginia Tech increasing its reach globally, resources for international research will continue to grow. Learn more about various resources that support international research.

Foreign Influence Guidance

The university remains committed to meeting regulatory compliance in all areas of education and research activities so that stakeholders are responsible stewards of public and private funding. Federal sponsors issue requirements for researchers to disclose their foreign and domestic affiliations, interests, and activities; therefore, researchers must promptly disclose to federal sponsors all relevant activities and information that bear on potential conflicts of interest and commitment.

International Travel

From registering travel and obtaining a loaner laptop, to guidance regarding international travel, the Office of Export and Secure Reseach Compliance serves as a critical step in the approval process.


International Shipping

Numerous departments at Virginia Tech have a role in ensuring international shipments are conducted in compliance with university policies and procedures as well as federal regulations. 

International Visitors

Virginia Tech is required by federal regulations to establish procedures to monitor assignments to its facilities of foreign nationals to ensure that the disclosure of, and access to, export-controlled articles and related information are limited to those that are approved by an export authorization.
