The student-centered ePortfolios Initiative is a Provost initiative led by the University Libraries in partnership with many campus departments and units. The initiative is designed as a flexible way for students and faculty to showcase work that highlights their VT-shaped student experience over time. ePortfolios at Virginia Tech will connect students, faculty, and communities across disciplines and will provide a space where students can connect to employers looking for specific skills. The ePortfolio Initiative supports the University’s mission to showcase students’ ability to be both leaders in specific disciplines while also cultivating transdisciplinary interests and skills, digital literacy and career competencies, aspirational values, and engagement in experiential and communal learning.
