Welcome to RVCC, where we measure our success by the success of our students. Whether you’re beginning your college education or seeking technical training for workplace skills, we’re committed to giving you the skills you need to see the world in a broader perspective and to thrive in a changing economy.
As I begin my year as Interim President, I’m honored to follow President Casey Crabill, a leader whose impact on RVCC will be felt for some time to come. I will continue to pursue her policy of creating strategic alliances within the community, with businesses, industries and other accredited higher education institutions that greatly enhance the quality of an RVCC education.
A recent report, funded by the Kresge Foundation, says community colleges will be expected to produce more degrees of a higher quality at a lower per-student cost to an increasingly diverse population. These are challenging times for community colleges, and we know that times are equally challenging for our students.
Here at RVCC, we are continuing to evolve to meet the changing needs of our students and our community. In the coming months, we’ll see these plans come to fruition:
RVCC’s expanded campus, as well as our student activity program, our outstanding Planetarium and Theatre offerings, and our growing number of online courses, are all designed with one goal in mind: to empower our students and to ensure their success. I invite you to visit RVCC and learn more about all we can do for you.
James B. Ventantonio
RVCC Interim President
