Our goal is to grow VCCS to its full potential.
Our System: The Virginia Community College System (VCCS) is comprised of 23 community colleges located on 40 campuses throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Our colleges provide programs and courses of instruction through the associate-degree level, encompassing occupational-technical education, college transfer education, general education, developmental education, continuing education and workforce development. We provide access to quality higher educational opportunities and workforce training throughout the Commonwealth.
Our Students: Virginia’s Community Colleges are open access institutions, serving individuals, families, businesses, and communities across the Commonwealth. We take great pride in the incredible diversity of our collective student bodies, from high school students to nonagenarians; from the first in their family to attend college to an increasing number of veterans and military-related students; along with individuals from every race and ethnicity. Students of color make up about 40 percent of enrollment across our colleges.
Our mission is to give everyone the opportunity to learn and develop the right skills so lives and communities are strengthened. If you are excited by our mission, are looking for a new challenge and like a high-energy environment making a difference in people’s lives, then you’ll love working in the Virginia Community College System. The VCCS provides a competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package. Check out our job openings and benefits.
The Virginia Community College System Office is an Equal Opportunity employer and is committed to fostering, cultivating and sustaining a culture of diversity and inclusion. The VCCS encourages applications from women, minorities, veterans and those with disabilities in our effort to reflect our diverse society. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
Diversity & Inclusion
We know that having a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace attracts outstanding faculty, staff and students. More than 40 percent of our students bring racial and ethnic diversity to our 23 colleges; we want to mirror the communities we serve. Therefore, we are committed to ensuring that all students, faculty, staff and leaders have positive experiences in an engaging environment that leverages our differences and honors our shared values.
The VCCS views Diversity and Inclusion as critical to our mission:
We give everyone the opportunity to learn and develop the right skills so lives and communities are strengthened.
As a higher education institution, we recognize that we are preparing students to compete in a global economy that serves a diverse market. We cannot fully embrace this mission without having the best talent – representing people from all backgrounds – develop students who are skilled professionally and well-rounded personally. Our primary goal is to support the growth and success of all students who enroll in the Virginia Community College System. We invite you to join us.
With 5 minority—majority institutions, and a collective minority student headcount (42%) that is well above the estimated minority population in Virginia (37%), we know our colleges are institutions of choice for minority students throughout the state. We also strive to be a model for diversity and inclusion and become institutions of choice for faculty, staff and leadership.
Chancellor’s Teaching Fellowship
The Chancellor’s Teaching Fellows program is designed to expand our recruitment efforts to reach potential applicants who have traditionally not been candidates for employment with the VCCS. Our goal is to build a more robust talent pool from which to select the best part-time faculty. A significant portion of our full-time faculty are first hired part-time, making it vital for us to ensure that our applicant pool is as diverse as possible.

“The VCCS Teaching Fellows program granted me the opportunity to receive my first teaching appointment. The program and mentorship I received was phenomenal. My mentor provided dynamic leadership and guidance as well as challenged me to excel in all areas of the classroom, from pedagogy to providing quality feedback to classroom management. This experience was rewarding and was the launch pad that sparked my interest to pursue a doctoral degree and career in higher education.”
–Dr. Crystal Wynn, Assistant Professor, Dietetics, Virginia State University
