Blog Post


With this new year comes a new blog presence for Virginia’s Community Colleges, a place where we will share the stories, expertise and people that make the community college experience real. We’ll start out by sharing news from the legislative session of the 2014 General Assembly. And we’ll highlight the stories of students who participate in “Every Day is Community College Day,” students who share why community colleges are such an important resource to all families in the commonwealth.

Within the next few weeks we’ll add new features as well, including stories that focus on how Virginia’s Community Colleges impact and support the workforce environment in the state, the powerful impact the transfer process can have on those new to the community college environment, and how Virginia’s Community Colleges continue to transform themselves to even better meet the commonwealth’s needs.
