CCV: Where Vermonters go to college Wh e n picking an in -s t ate college, mor e

Community College of Vermont was founded on the belief that all Vermonters should have access to a high-quality college education at a fair price. Today, 96% of our student body is comprised of Vermonters and we enroll more Vermont college students than any other school in the state. These students are our friends, family members, and neighbors. They are high school graduates, small-business owners, veterans, grandparents, single parents, and everyone in between. When you support CCV you are helping a Vermonter earn a college degree, which in turn strengthens Vermont.
CCV’s presence throughout the state and our thorough understanding of the educational needs of our veterans, active duty service members, and their dependents, makes us ideally positioned to offer the most comprehensive military support network of any college in the state. Our full-time veteran and military resource advisor and our center-based veteran advisors ensure that advice and support are available to students wherever it is needed. This comprehensive support program helps these students access their federal benefits, locate community support services, and navigate college. Your support of CCV allows us to provide this resource and helps veteran students move forward during and after completing their service to our country.
Vermon t. We b elieve it’s beca u se we a e of g e re unity Co l l
Supporting Community College of Vermont means supporting the future of Vermont. Each year approximately 3,000 high school graduates decide not to attend college immediately. With expectations pointing to a future in which 60% of jobs in Vermont will require education beyond high school, changing this trend is crucial. Our secondary education initiatives are doing just that. Starting with the 600 high school students who experience college life through our free Introduction to College Studies course to the nearly 1,000 high school students we serve each year through dual enrollment courses, CCV is helping young Vermonters realize the importance of higher education, and your generosity will help us reach more of these students.

Every dollar given to CCV’s General Scholarship Fund goes directly to students in the form of scholarships and tuition assistance, guaranteeing that anyone who wants to come to CCV can afford to. In a time marked by soaring student debt, CCV’s 16 scholarships and funds provide students with the chance to graduate carrying less, or in some cases, no student loan debt. CCV-Montpelier student Heaven O’Hara is the 2015 recipient of one of these scholarships: the CCV Legacy Scholarship. This award allowed her to explore interests, learn about herself, and plot a course for a successful future in Vermont. “Without CCV I never would have had these opportunities and the chance to learn what I’m really capable of. After I graduate I plan to volunteer as a victim’s advocate for abused children. This is something I have wanted to do since I was a teenager and I am very excited to be able to accomplish this.” Contributions to CCV’s General Scholarship Fund will allow more students like Heaven to study at CCV.
Service Learning Learning at CCV isn’t confined to the classroom; we believe our students should be engaged members of their communities and our service learning projects ensure this happens. Each semester our instructors incorporate community service into a number of courses at the College. Supporting CCV means strengthening local communities by helping to fund programs that have a direct impact on towns and villages across the state. These projects connect classroom learning to the real world and establish a better understanding of the value and need for civic engagement. Last year, CCV-Montpelier students raised funds to rebuild an elementary school playground and CCV-Springfield students mapped social, environmental, and economic data in the village of Bellows Falls. In total, CCV students completed 25,323 community service hours during the last academic year at an estimated value of over half a million dollars.

The backbone of a strong Vermont economy is a strong Vermont workforce. On a large scale, we have been able to use federal grants to expand our workforce education offerings and partner with many Vermont businesses to help them hire and train the employees they need. Your support helps us design more programs on a smaller scale at the local level. For example, a donation to CCV may help purchase a modern microscope used by our STEM degree students. From here, they may go on to Vermont Tech to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in renewable energy, ready for a career in any number of high-tech industries operating here in Vermont. Your support for CCV translates into a stronger Vermont workforce, and a stronger Vermont workforce strengthens communities and builds a vibrant Vermont economy.
Donations to our Annual Fund support CCV’s general operating costs. These contributions support our facilities and infrastructure for our 12 academic centers located throughout Vermont. Every day thousands of students, faculty, and staff access these centers, which act as economic engines in the villages and towns where they are located. Additionally, our 1,000 online courses per year allow students to study from any location through our Center for Online Learning. The Annual Fund makes all of this possible and supports the widest range of services and academic tools available to Vermonters through CCV.
