The State Council for Higher Education of Virginia (SCHEV) released four new reports that provide strategies to further align funding and policies to meet the Commonwealth’s goal of becoming the best-educated state by 2030. The reports focus on improving affordability, completion, talent development, quality and equity.
"Virginia Military Institute on Friday named a Black general and alumnus as its interim superintendent, and he pledged to give the college a self-assessment of its racial culture as an independent investigation into claims of bigotry is about to begin. The Lexington school named retired Maj. Gen. Cedric Wins its temporary leader, chosen by the board of visitors’ executive committee," reports the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
To mark Virginia College Application Week (Nov. 16-20), The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) launched a statewide video featuring college students encouraging high schoolers to attend some form of postsecondary education after graduation.
