Under the leadership of Joyce Judy, the College’s seventh president, CCV focuses on cultivating deep and lasting relationships with high schools, businesses, and community partners across Vermont.

President: Joyce Judy, 2009 – present

From the support services needed by the 1,700 Vermont National Guard troops returning to the state in 2010 to credential and degree programs created in direct response to student and employer needs, CCV is proactive in serving Vermont communities.

With the goal of increasing the number of students who continue their education, CCV plays a key leadership role in promoting opportunities for high school students to take college courses. An enhanced continuum of offerings engages students as early as middle school and allows high school students to earn 36 to 44 college credits for free through the Dual Enrollment and Early College programs.

Philanthropy plays an important role in the College’s ability to enhance student support services and to offer scholarships that provide just-in-time support to help students stay on track in their studies.

As CCV looks to celebrating its 50thyear in 2020, its mission is more relevant than ever. CCV is committed to ensuring that the opportunity to pursue higher education exists for generations of Vermonters to come.
