Preeti Pandey Wins ASPIRE! Award in Practice Civility

The Kellogg Center for Philosophy, Politics, and Economics is pleased to announce that PPE major, Preeti Pandey, has won the 2024 Virginia Tech Aspire! Award in the category Practice Civility.

Established in 2011, the Aspirations for Student Learning further Student Affairs’ culture of life-long learning by encouraging community members to embody the five aspirations through interpersonal awareness, intentional actions, and self-reflection.

As president of the Hokie Vote Caucus, Preeti helps create programming that fosters a positive civic culture at Virginia Tech, including events with moderated community conversations led by topic experts. Pandey assisted in planning dialogues with the Sierra Club, Delta Lambda Phi, the League of Women Voters, and Chi Omega. 

Pandey said that to her, civility means “showing respect and kindness toward all people,” and that she demonstrates that respect “by being kind, polite, and an active listener.”
