"Leaders across higher education are breathing a collective sigh of relief this summer after arguably the most challenging year of their careers during the pandemic. With high vaccination rates, plummeting COVID cases and deaths, and near-full re-openings across the states, U.S. higher education seems poised to rebound this coming academic year. But despite the generally optimistic outlook relative to a receding pandemic, there remain many reasons why this coming year might actually be harder on higher ed than the past year," reports Forbes.
"Five years ago, state lawmakers acted in bipartisan fashion to help workers find affordable pathways to good paying, high-demand jobs, and employers to find the skilled pool of talent that they need for these positions. In a public health crisis, Virginia’s New Economy Workforce Credential Grant Program is paying off," writes the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Governor Ralph Northam recently appointed five new members to the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV). In addition, SCHEV will hold its regularly scheduled meeting on July 13 at its offices at 101 N. 14th Street, 9th floor, Richmond, VA 23219.
SCHEV values honesty, quality, diversity, inclusion, growth-orientation, personal well-being, equity, transparency and accountability.
Through these values, we create a welcoming work environment that represents the best of who we are as an agency and as individuals.
