[Chancellor’s Statewide Syllabus with logo]

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Being part of a national trend is no excuse for inaction; the VCCS Board has approved steps to address the historic enrollment declines at Virginia’s Community Colleges. 

(http://www.vccs.edu/vccsblog_post/vccs-takes-action-on-lower-student-enrollments/)

 

The enrollment declines at Virginia’s Community Colleges correspond with a national trend. According to recent analysis form the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, college enrollments overall are down 7 percent in the past five years:
• 19,105,651 students enrolled in higher education in spring 2013
• 17,839,330 students enrolled in higher education in spring 2018 The Research Center says enrollment declines have been sharpest at for-profit schools and community colleges.

During June, we’ll look back on commencement exercises at our colleges around Virginia, sharing “Pearls of Wisdom” offered during graduation speeches. In today’s edition, we feature inspirational messages from SVCC, TNCC, VHCC, PDCCC and WCC.
