Initiative Update

Virginia’s Community Colleges are coming together to bring nursing into the 21st century – work that is both cutting-edge and potentially lifesaving.

Did you know?

During AY 2016-2017:

  • 241,412 students were enrolled in VCCS colleges
  • 32,555 degrees, diplomas and certificates were awarded
  • 40,340 students were dual enrolled
  • 57% of students were on a transfer path for a four-year university

 

FACULTY PERSPECTIVE: Charlottesville

“Historians, like myself, are often conflicted between preserving memories from our past and destroying monuments and statues that glorify events, like the Confederacy and slavery that we would just as soon forget.”

 

College Round Up

A law degree at the age of 23? Reynolds Community College Advance College Academy graduate says it would have been impossible, and a lot more expensive, without her community college… And the new local board chair of Germanna Community College is no stranger to the college, nor the region it serves.
