Venture Grants—competitive grant awards that students may use after their sophomore year. Projects must be entrepreneurial, self-testing, or intellectually challenging and must benefit others, either directly or through an organization.
vice presidents—vice president for administration and treasurer; vice president for enrollment services; vice president for development and alumni relations. (In 2011, the words "vice president" were removed from the titles of the dean of students and the provost/dean of the college.)
visiting professors and visiting instructors—temporary hires for sabbatical replacements or occasional courses. This non-tenure-track designation can be combined with any rank (instructor, assistant professor, etc.).
visiting scholars—international scholars who may be here to teach or to conduct research, often as part of an exchange program.
