Virginia’s Community Colleges were created more than 40 years ago to address Virginia’s unmet needs in higher education and workforce training. That pursuit continues with Achieve 2015, a six-year strategic plan for Virginia’s Community Colleges.
Achieve 2015 is focused on the needs of the communities we serve, not the needs of our community colleges. Community input served as the genesis for this strategic plan. Formal and informal conversations across Virginia with students, business and community leaders and elected officials guided the plan’s creation. The ultimate success of the plan will be judged with Virginia’s Community Colleges report back to those communities with the results of its five measurable goals: Access, Affordability, Student Success, Workforce and Resources.
