Okay, it’s not exactly a scene from the movie “Braveheart;” so perhaps ‘storm’ was a bit much in the title of this post. But next week some of the most exciting and creative efforts throughout Virginia’s Community Colleges will be on display at the General Assembly Building in Richmond.
“As the realities of the economy are felt on both family budgets and government budgets, I expect an even greater demand on the skills and knowledge our community colleges offer. These efforts show that our colleges have the creativity and leadership we’ll need to get the job done,” said Glenn DuBois, chancellor of Virginia’s General Assembly.
You can read the details in this VCCS press release. Community college employees and students from across Virginia will be coming to Richmond to share with lawmakers and others how innovative efforts like Middle College, Career Coaches, guaranteed transfer agreements and other are helping to ensure that more and more people have affordable access to a college education.
If you are in Richmond next week, be sure to stop by and say hello.
