Chancellor's Statewide Syllabus with logo

 Wednesday, January 10, 2018

What might the General Assembly session hold for Virginia’s Community Colleges and, more importantly, the people we serve? We asked some of those who are working with lawmakers on the big issues.

Craig Herndon:
Funding for FastForward credentials is a legislative priority.


Sharon Morrissey:
Improving transfer pathways without losing credits.



Updated VCCS Website
Late next week, we will launch a refreshed version of the VCCS website that will include updates to the design, navigation and content to make it more user-friendly for internal and external users. You will find much of the same information, but it will be organized in a more intuitive way. This refresh has been a year in the making, and we hope you find it more attractive and easier to use. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Laura Osberger at
