The campus is located at 1021 Prince Street in Old Town Alexandria, VA. It is metro accessible on the Blue and Yellow metro lines, just a 15 minute walk or 5 minute Bikeshare ride from the King Street metro station. Many Alexandria graduate students take classes on a part-time basis, while working full-time in federal, regional, and local government positions, as well as in consulting and the non-profit sector. Most classes at the National Capital Region campus begin at 4p.m. and 7p.m., with occasional weekend conference-style meetings. Our students are part of a community that includes more than 35,000 Virginia Tech alumni in the national capital region. We have the benefits of community that come from a close-knit program dedicated to thoughtful public service alongside the benefits of a large university. Students are also able to reach faculty in Blacksburg and Richmond through video conference technology for advising, service on committees, and online courses. Many of our faculty come from long careers in government, or are primarily reflective practitioners who hold a full time job in government as well as scholarly credentials. They bring current policy and management experience as well as their personal networks to the classroom for the benefit of students. From lunchtime research in progress talks to evening guest workshops for doctoral students, aspiring public administrators, and alumni, our students have ample opportunity to interact with public officials and policy experts.
