ID : 957   
« back to classes page
The course will explore factors leading to the formation of the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) and its early history.  The course will examine social, political and economic events that served to spur the creation of Virginia’s community colleges from the mid-1950’s until the early 1970’s.  Borne out of the educational and economic inadequacies of “Massive Resistance,” the VCCS was preceded legislatively by the Virginia Technical College System (VTCS.)  The course will explain the concept of a comprehensive community college and how the VCCS fits within the context and mission of the Commonwealth’s other higher education institutions.
