Dr. Glenn DuBois, chancellor of the Virginia Community College System, recently visited Paul D. Camp Community College as one of his stops during a series of town hall meetings that began last September.
The chancellor’s goal is to visit each of the 23 Virginia Community colleges in the system for input and discussion about future strategies. He provided an update on the progress of the reengineering and “rethink” process and answered questions from students, faculty and staff.
In 2009, the chancellor announced that a special Reengineering Taskforce was going to lead an effort to rethink how our community colleges are to meet their mission at a time when resources are scarce, but enrollment continues to grow.
According to the VCCS, there are more than 25 groups in 10 goal areas addressing issues identified by the taskforce. Taskforce and committee members are made up of faculty, staff, administrators and student representing each of the colleges. Details can be found by logging onto http://rethink.vccs.edu/
