Center for Educational Networks and Impacts

The Center for Educational Networks and Impacts (CENI) promotes collaboration across our region, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the nation in outreach and engagement, research and evaluation, and partnership and advocacy. Aligned with the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT), we are committed to lifelong learning for all.

Center for Educational Networks and Impacts


Programs and Projects

We offer safe, fun, and educational ways for lifelong learners of all kinds to learn and share at interactive events like the Virginia Tech Science Festival and ICAT Creativity + Innovation Day. Our Hokie for a Day program brings together volunteers, researchers, and learners in field trips throughout the year. 



The CENI network of education liaisons is building a community of practice between Virginia Tech and the regional formal and informal education community, including museums and school systems. Liaisons work with both Virginia Tech and their respective education organizations.



At the Center for Educational Networks and Impacts, we offer collaborative research support to the Virginia Tech community. The Center consults with researchers on broader impact design, data management plans, statistical analysis and interpretation, and external evaluation.
