Update on Cook Counseling fee structure

Posted: Aug. 13, 2020

From: Vice President for Student Affairs

A beautiful community is one that speaks up, listens, learns, and works to understand multiple perspectives. In my role as Vice President for Student Affairs, I am especially grateful for courageous student voices who engage me with conviction, honesty, and a hope for who we seek to be as Virginia Tech. This week, student leaders have shared candidly a conviction that new fees in Cook Counseling Center will have a disparate and deleterious impact on students most in need of support. I am convinced that our students are right. As such, the only reasonable action is to reverse course and cancel the implementation of any new fees.

I am both humbled and grateful by the shared partnership I have found at Virginia Tech, and especially among our students.

With hope,

Frank Shushok Jr.
Vice President for Student Affairs
