Initiative Update:

Germanna Community College (GCC) has a new president. Effective July 1, 2017, Dr. Janet Gullickson will become the sixth, and first female, president of GCC. Dr. Gullickson was selected after a national search that attracted more than 100 candidates. She will succeed Dr. David Sam, who will retire after having served as Germanna’s president for nearly a decade.  

Best Practices Win Big Awards!  

By now, everyone should know that during fall 2016/winter 2017, all 23 VCCS colleges participated in the Chancellor’s Listening Tour during which colleges presented one student success best practice, supported by data, and a plan for scalability and sustainability. (Each best practice description is available at VCCS’s The Resource Center.).  

FOUNDATION SPOTLIGHT:
