New River Community College today announced its support of the newly-launched Growth4VA campaign, which will focus on promoting reform and reinvestment in Virginia’s top-ranked higher education system. The campaign, backed by a partnership of higher education and business leaders, aims to help grow the Virginia economy, expand access to education and job opportunities for all Virginians, and regain Virginia’s #1 ranking for business.
Virginia’s colleges, universities, and community colleges are stepping up to help achieve these goals. Working with our partners in the business community, we will be offering practical policies and creative ideas focused on four strategies:
Make Virginia the Top State for Talent
Become recognized as the Home of Innovators and Entrepreneurs
Prepare Virginians for Great Jobs and Great Lives
Provide Affordable Access for All Virginians
“The Growth4VA campaign reflects long-standing values embraced by the NRCC community,” said NRCC President Dr. Pat Huber. “We are pleased to be a part of this effort and look forward to any and all opportunities for NRCC and the state’s higher education system to support Virginia’s continued growth and development.”
Growth4VA is a campaign of the Virginia Business Higher Education Council and has been endorsed by all 15 of Virginia’s public higher education institutions and the Virginia Community College System.
