The Flexus community engages closely with the Virtus Community.
The Virtus Living and Learning Program is a two-year living and learning community open to incoming first-year engineering students. Virtus was designed for all engineering students who identify as men. The primary focus of Virtus is to promote community and inclusivity within the Clark School and the field of engineering. The Virtus community leads by example in empowering students to shift the culture of engineering towards the inclusivity of underrepresented groups in the field of engineering, including, but not limited to, women. The Virtus community engages closely with Flexus.
