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.).
