Connecting Vermonters to Opportunity

Dear Friends, We invite you to join us in celebration.


For 50 years, CCV has been connecting Vermonters to opportunity: opportunity to expand knowledge and skills, earn a college degree or credential that leads to meaningful employment, become more confident, cultivate deeper connections, and build better lives.

to the people who have made CCV what it is today:

From day one, CCV has taken a unique approach. Fifty years ago, CCV was a bold experiment in bringing higher education to the people of this rural state. We were guided by the belief that college should be accessible to all. We challenged the status quo. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive: Vermont needed CCV.

to the visionaries who brought CCV to life; to the faculty who have gifted thousands of students with their passion for learning; and to the students whose determination and belief in themselves is daily inspiration for our work.

Fifty years later, CCV is the second largest college in the state. We have served more than 150,000 students since the early 1970s. Today, we are proud to continue forging our path. CCV makes a college education possible for all who have the desire to learn. We make it possible to fit school into a life that also includes work and family. We make it possible to earn a college degree without going into debt.

Our staff and faculty through the years, many of whom have dedicated their careers to CCV, have been proud stewards of CCV’s mission. They have rolled up their sleeves and done whatever it takes, all while keeping students at the heart of their efforts.

CCV remains committed to the spirit of innovation at its core. We are continually adapting to the changing needs of our state. We are delivering credentials and degrees that serve as a bridge between students and employers. We are reaching deeper into our communities to build relationships with schools, businesses, and organizations, recognizing that our strength and resilience is born of collaboration.

To the people of CCV’s first 50 years, and to the people of our 50 years to come: we thank you.

CCV’s 50th anniversary is a chance to reflect on our history and to look forward. It is a chance to celebrate our students, faculty, and staff, both past and present. It is an opportunity to tell our story, which is both inspiring and illuminating, and which places CCV firmly in the bedrock of Vermont’s communities. We are grateful for your support as we look to the 50 years ahead.

Joyce Judy, President

Creating access to higher education…

In late summer 1970, Governor Deane Davis charges a special commission with finding a way to deliver postsecondary education to Vermonters in their local communities. That fall, a handful of people in a single, cramped office in Montpelier offer a menu of ten courses. In these earliest years, students are not charged tuition and instructors do not receive pay. Idealism, energy, and zeal are the order of the day. An experiment from the beginning, CCV is Vermont’s innovative response to a gap in access to education. CCV makes it possible for people to continue their education — people who might have been discouraged in the past by high tuition costs, distance from campuses, family Peter P. Smith, President or job responsibilities, and limiting admissions policies. 1970 – 1978 CCV utilizes resources already available in Vermont communities, holding classes in schools, offices, banks, churches, and even the local hardware store. CCV instructors are also members of the local community, often with full-time jobs practicing the skills they teach. CCV places its greatest emphasis on the student. Through its field offices located around the state, the College brings courses into Vermont communities, designing classes to meet student needs. Through low tuition, flexible class hours, open admissions, and the use of existing resources, CCV brings new opportunities to thousands of Vermonters previously excluded from postsecondary education. When the College is threatened with closure in 1979, a groundswell of grassroots support led by students, along with faculty and staff, saves CCV. Bruised but not beaten, CCV looks ahead while holding on to its founding principles and unique educational philosophy.

A decade of growth... CCV adds six new locations in the early ’80s, bringing the College within 25 miles of 95% of Vermonters. 1980 Morrisville

A newly reorganized CCV sets its sights on improved academic credibility, financial stability, and greater community visibility. CCV is awarded its first major grants from the U.S. Department of Education, and in 1982, is re-accredited for 10 years by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

Kenneth G. Kalb, President 1983 – 1991

CCV experiences a growth spurt under the leadership of Ken Kalb, its third president. Over the course of the decade, enrollment more than doubles and only UVM enrolls more students. CCV is the second largest college in the state and the student population begins to shift to a greater number of degree-seeking students.

1981 Rutland 1982 Burlington / Winooski 1983 Upper Valley / Bennington 1984 Middlebury

SNAPSHOT: FALL 1989 1,768 1980

CCV continues to expand into all corners of the state by adding six locations, serving all of Vermont's major employment sectors. At the beginning of the decade, the College operates as a loose confederation of local offices, each creating its own course list and marketing materials. But by the end of the 1980s, CCV has truly become one college with standard course offerings and a centralized Academic Review Board. With its academic and organizational foundation in place, and remaining true to its student-centered approach to teaching and learning, CCV is poised to take on the Information Age in the years ahead.


// CCV 2019 Annual Report


CCV student enrollment more than doubles in the ’80s.


CCV receives its first Title III and TRIO grants from the U.S. Department of Education to expand locations and services to students, including the development of Dimensions of Learning, CCV’s first-semester seminar course that focuses on critical thinking and the new student experience.



3,881 Students


President Myrna Miller shepherds the College through a period of academic reform and codification of the curriculum, refining its student-centered approach to teaching and learning.

459 Instructors


VSC transfers its Office of External Programs to CCV, making its Assessment of Prior Learning (APL) program integral to CCV and securing the college as a pioneer in awarding credit for prior learning.


CCV completes its expansion into Vermont’s Western corridor with the addition of the Middlebury academic center, its 6th in quick succession following Morrisville in 1980, Rutland in 1981, Burlington in 1982, and Bennington & Upper Valley in 1983. With 12 locations statewide, CCV is now within 25 miles of 95% of Vermonters.


After record enrollment growth over the decade, CCV forges formerly autonomous academic centers into a single, statewide institution, a change that is critical for what is to come in the 1990s and beyond.

CCV pioneers online learning in Vermont... “The greatest strength of online learning is its capacity to reach out to all sorts and kinds and to bring the full scope of CCV’s curriculum to all Vermonters. Online learning offers the college an opportunity to launch and deliver new degree programs that we would not otherwise be able to offer.”

— Dr. John D. Christensen, Lead Coordinator of Academic Services for the Center for Online Learning (1951 – 2015)

By the early 1990s, CCV serves more students each year than the other Vermont State Colleges institutions combined.

CCV launched its first website in 1995. “Now we're taking our commitment one step further as we bring CCV to you electronically. We are excited and proud to offer our unique, people-first brand of education via the internet...welcome to CCV on-line.”

With no campus, it operates from 12 leased facilities. In a quest for greater administrative efficiency and creative ways to reach geographically dispersed students, CCV embraces new technologies with vigor. Within the span of ten months, CCV’s Virtual Campus project uses emerging network and computer systems to connect all 12 locations, the library, and central administrative offices, allowing for increased and instantaneous collaboration across the College. CCV embraces a culture of change. Within the Vermont State Colleges system, CCV gains recognition for its agility, responsiveness, and vision, while remaining focused on excellence in teaching and learning. Venturing into largely unmapped territory, CCV experiments with a few online courses and soon develops the capacity to deliver a wide variety of classes and programs to rural students left stranded by traditional delivery models. With this development, CCV’s 13th academic center, the Center for Online Learning, is born.


4,812 Students

Barbara E. Murphy, President 1994 – 2001

As increased numbers of traditional-aged students aspire to continue their education beyond CCV, the College pursues special transfer agreements and gains a reputation as a pipeline into Vermont’s four-year institutions. By the end of the decade, CCV emerges as a mature, high-functioning organization with an integral place in Vermont’s higher education landscape.


// CCV 2019 Annual Report

517 Instructors


CCV deploys its “Virtual Campus,” linking its administrative offices and 12 statewide locations via networked computers.


Beginning with revisions to its associate degree requirements, CCV undergoes a profound shift in the way it views, manages, and evaluates academic programs. The result is a move from a single associate degree to seventeen individual programs of study that conclude with Seminar in Educational Inquiry, a capstone course that all students take prior to graduation.


CCV offers its first online course, Introduction to Political Science, featuring a chat session with Senator Patrick Leahy.


CCV and the University of Vermont sign a long-sought articulation agreement guaranteeing CCV graduates admission to UVM College of Arts and Sciences, the first of many transfer pathways to come.


CCV establishes the Endowment for Student Success with a gift of $25,000 and the stated purpose “to establish gifts in aid to assist deserving students.”

THE 2000s: RECOGNITION CCV is broadly recognized as an essential player in Vermont higher education, with a unique niche in the arena of online learning.

Continued growth and credibility... Online course placements: Between 2000 and 2010, the number of online courses taken grows tremendously, from 593 in 2000 to 3,168 in 2010.

In forty years, CCV has grown in ways no one could have foreseen. By 2010, online courses account for 20% of overall enrollment, and an average of 1,200 Vermont high school students co-enroll at CCV each year.


// CCV 2019 Annual Report

Hartness Library then

In 2000, CCV takes the bold step of revamping its entire library system. Until this point, the College has had no central library facility and students have relied heavily on local libraries and web-based resources. CCV merges its “anytime, anywhere” resources with Vermont Tech’s campus-based library services to create the shared Hartness Library.

For the first time in its history, CCV invests in and owns its own facilities. This development stabilizes, and in some instances reduces, overall facilities costs, while more firmly rooting the College in the communities it serves. These new academic centers are key to serving an increasingly full-time, traditional-aged student population.

Increase in traditionalaged students: Enrollment of students age 22 and younger more than doubles from 1,289 students in 2000 to 2,999 in 2010.

Online course placement growth in 10 years

Students can complete degree and certificate programs entirely online, but also enjoy access to in-person local supports from their academic advisors and learning centers.

Timothy J. Donovan, President 2001 – 2009

534% ... and now!


7,005 Students 640 Instructors


CCV enters into a memorandum of agreement with Vermont Tech in an effort to enhance and systematize access to resources and to provide statewide library services to students through the new Hartness Library.


CCV develops Introduction to College Studies (ICS) for high school students to support successful transitions to college. The following year, CCV plays a significant leadership role in establishing the Fast Forward program, which creates the first dual enrollment opportunities for Vermont high school students.


CCV builds a facility in the Upper Valley, which becomes the first of four academic centers owned by the College, including those in Montpelier, St. Albans, and Winooski.


Ten years after offering its first online course, CCV’s Center for Online Learning becomes the College’s second largest academic center. By the end of the decade, CCV will offer degree and certificate programs that can be completed entirely online.


CCV joins a nationwide movement to become more data-driven in its strategic planning and decisionmaking, and the Lumina Foundation invites CCV to become an Achieving the Dream college.

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.

Joyce M. Judy, President 2009 – present

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 celebrate its 50th year 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.

CCV establishes Veterans Support Services to help soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan access their military education benefits. This is the first of several programs supported through philanthropic grants from the J. Warren and Lois McClure Foundation and other major donors.


CCV builds on the success of the Governor’s Career Readiness Certificate, and renews its focus on meeting workforce demands and connecting college to career, when it receives the first of two federal TAACCCT grants, leading to the launch of new degree programs designed collaboratively with Vermont employers.


CCV provides significant support and leadership in the writing of Act 77, the Flexible Pathways bill, which provides opportunities for Vermont high school students to take college courses for free.


CCV’s part-time faculty votes in favor of representation by the American Federation of Teachers union, and after six months of negotiation, CCV signs its first faculty contract, representing the College’s continued commitment to progress, innovation, and service to Vermont students and communities.


Amid demographic, technological, and cultural change, CCV increases organizational capacity and sustainability by making bold changes to staff roles and curricular programs, with the belief that the future of higher education will be designed with innovation and courage.

Since the beginning

Looking to the future

Born of a freewheeling, creative era, and committed from the start to providing access to affordable higher education to every Vermonter who stands to benefit, CCV has held to its core belief that education has the power to transform lives, inspire families, and strengthen communities.

Today, higher education faces the challenge of finding creative ways to meet student needs — what CCV has been doing, with great success, for half a century. With flexible programs, part-time faculty, and a singular focus on teaching and learning, CCV offers a working, workable model for what higher education can become.

CCV’s story, at heart, is about giving people of all ages and backgrounds the chance to change their lives for the better. For fifty years, CCV has stayed true to its mission, even as it has grown, and remained committed to wrapping its programs and courses around the needs of its students and communities, rather than becoming institutionalized around a central campus and departmental structure. CCV has retained a focus on creating welcoming, safe, and supportive environments where small class sizes and active student engagement are viewed as essential to the teaching and learning process. This foundational emphasis on the needs of the student makes Vermont’s community college unique across higher education.


// CCV 2019 Annual Report

Endowment for Student Success T H E PA S T: In 1999, former Vermont State College trustee Jan Gillette established the Endowment for Student Success (ESS) to “generate annual proceeds that can provide scholarship grants to deserving students whose chances at realizing success at the College will be strengthened by gifts of aid.”

CCV has always been a college on the move, approaching change with the same determination and energy as its students, who propel their lives forward with the knowledge that change leads to growth. With a bold new strategic plan and newly designed academic programs, CCV is poised to take on the future. CCV feels fortunate to enjoy a broadening sphere of support from the business and philanthropic communities, and steps into its sixth decade an agile, innovative, and proud institution continually striving to better serve Vermont.

OUR MISSION The Community College of Vermont

supports and challenges all students in meeting their educational goals through an abiding commitment to access, affordability, and student success.


T H E P R E S E N T: Gifts from staff, faculty, and friends have grown the ESS to over $1 million dollars, and today, the Endowment generates more than $50,000 each year in scholarship funds that directly benefit CCV students.






THE FUTURE: Your gift to the ESS is a long-term investment in Vermont, providing access to higher education for future generations.

Philanthropic Partnerships at CCV

Philanthropic partnerships play a special role in helping CCV deliver comprehensive programs and student support services that go beyond what would otherwise be possible. Following are four examples of how philanthropy has helped CCV deliver on its mission to provide access to higher education for all Vermonters.

If you have the ability to give, or if the College has played a special role in your life, please consider a gift to CCV to help us better serve our students.

Just-in-Time “Life Gap” Grants Eighty percent of CCV students work full- or part-time while going to college. They take classes while raising families, working one or more jobs, and often struggle to meet their basic needs for food, transportation and childcare. Under these circumstances, any unanticipated expense — a worn-out tire, a sick child, an empty pantry — can prevent them from continuing in their studies. Life Gap Grants help students bridge challenging situations. As little as $100 to $200 can make the difference between staying in school and dropping out. Your gift to CCV’s Life Gap Grant program helps students continue their education.

How one student persevered in their studies with help from a Life Gap Grant: A visually impaired student was taking an evening class and arranged for rides home with another student. Then the other student dropped the course. Without a means of transportation, she attempted walking home. When the instructor brought this situation to the attention of CCV staff, a Life Gap Grant was awarded to pay for cab rides for the remaining weeks of the semester. This made it possible for the student to continue in the course she had already invested so much into by providing a safe and reliable way to get home each night.

Veterans Services

Access Days

CCV has a thorough understanding of the higher education needs of our veterans, active duty service members, and their dependents. On average, CCV serves 400 veteran and military-connected students annually across our 12 locations and online, helping them access federal benefits, locate community support services, and navigate college. Your support helps our veterans as they move forward with their education and careers, both during and after completing service to our country.

This past year, nearly 1,450 middle school students participated in Access Days, which provide middle school students with the opportunity to attend mock classes, meet faculty and staff, and hear about CCV directly from current students. Once in high school, these students can earn between 36 and 44 college credits for free through the state’s Dual Enrollment and Early College programs. When you support CCV, you are helping to make college and career readiness a reality for all Vermont students.

Judd Eichorst served in the military as an Air Force meteorologist. He came to CCV because:

“I knew that community college would help me figure out what the next steps were.”

Prison-to-Career CCV aims to reduce Vermont’s 40% recidivism rate by providing access to college courses and career preparation for Northern State Correctional Facility inmates. Inmates develop valuable job skills and often experience profound personal growth when they take college courses and begin to prepare for future education, training, and employment. By supporting CCV, you can help expand educational opportunities for inmates and strengthen Vermont communities.

Reflections from an inmate: “This has been such an inspirational time in my life. I want to thank you all for giving me the chance that I have always wanted to further my education. This means so much to me and my family. My mother is proud of me. My daughter cannot stop talking about college because she knows that I understand where she is coming from when she speaks college talk: she attends college, too. This is a major stepping stone for me, and I will continue to attend school beyond this point.”

Robbie, from Hunt Middle School, commented, “I appreciate all of the hard work the people at CCV did for us, thank you! I enjoyed all of the mini classes we attended. I learned a lot about how I can earn credits during high school for college, which will help me so much in the future. Thank you! I couldn’t have asked for more.”

Dear CCV Colleagues, Alumni, and Friends: I would like to invite my former colleagues, CCV alumni, and friends of the College to celebrate CCV’s 50th anniversary with a gift to the Legacy Society. CCV’s Legacy Society recognizes the generosity and enduring support of those who have included CCV in their estate plans. From the first 10 courses offered in Washington County in December 1970 to a presence in every corner of the state today, just over 150,000 Vermonters have experienced CCV over the past five decades. If CCV was a big part of your life, making the College a beneficiary of your estate is the fitting gift that leaves a lasting legacy and helps ensure future generations of students have access to higher education in their communities. Gifts such as bequests (simply naming CCV in your will) are called “planned gifts.” In addition to bequests, there are other ways to make a lasting impact, such as designating CCV as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, retirement plan, or other investment accounts. More complex planned gifts, such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust, provide tax advantages and pay you or other designated beneficiaries an income for life and should be considered in consultation with a qualified financial planner. I ask you to consider making a planned gift to CCV. Let the College know and they will gladly advise you on the ways your gift can be of greatest benefit to CCV and its students, and how your generosity can inspire others. If you have already included CCV in your estate plans, thank you! Let us know so we can recognize you publicly (or, if you prefer, thank you anonymously) as a member of CCV’s Legacy Society. For more information on joining CCV’s Legacy Society, please contact Aimee Stephenson, Director of Resource Development, at (802) 654-0540 or aimee.stephenson@ccv.edu.

Giving that grows... “We are native Vermonters from workingclass families, attended Vermont colleges and had long careers in higher education. Over our lifetimes, we have seen how education transformed the lives of our students. We decided to include CCV in our estate planning because we want to support access to higher education for all Vermonters, and nobody does this better than Community College of Vermont.” — Mica DeAngelis, former Coordinator of Academic Services and CCV faculty member and Barry Mansfield, former CCV faculty member, Burlington, VT

“ We named CCV in our Trust because CCV literally made it possible for me to continue my education. After receiving my degree from CCV, I went on to Johnson to complete my bachelor’s. CCV and Johnson changed my life and my career forever, and I was able to fulfill a life-long goal — earning a college degree.” — Jean E. ’77 and Charles (Kip) Snow, Eastham, MA

Honor CCV’s 50th anniversary with a gift of $50 to help ensure access to affordable higher education for the next 50 years! Why give? Are you one of the thousands of Vermonters who have been touched by CCV in the past 50 years? Help us celebrate this significant milestone by making a $50 gift in recognition of CCV’s 50 years of service to Vermont.

Why now? CCV has been connecting Vermonters to opportunity for 50 years, but the cost of a college education continues to rise. Although CCV offers the lowest tuition in Vermont, our students often still struggle to make ends meet. Scholarships help bridge the gap between federal financial aid and the cost of attendance.

Pay it forward! All $50 for 50 gifts go toward scholarships that help current CCV students meet their educational goals.

How to give Use the envelope enclosed in this annual report or make a gift online at ccv.edu/donate. Participating in $50 for 50 is easy with our recurring gift option online, where you can schedule a monthly gift of $5.
