During my travels around the state I am always surprised by how different Vermont’s communities are from one another. From the fast pace of Chittenden County to the tight-knit communities of Vermont’s many villages, this state is unique beyond words. I am also constantly reminded that no matter what town I am in, there is a CCV location close by. So close, in fact, we at the College have come to think of CCV as the college in every Vermonter’s backyard. But what does that mean? To me, it means opportunities for every Vermonter, no matter where they are in the state or in life. Being in the backyard of nearly every Vermont household means there isn’t a high school student in the state without the opportunity to explore what college has to offer them. It means that businesses, both small and large, can access high quality training programs to ensure their employees have the skills to succeed and advance. There also isn’t a Vermont veteran, active duty service member, or military family member who can’t easily reach one of our academic centers, or connect to CCV’s veteran’s services online to begin or continue their college career. And in this time when the cost of a college education seems prohibitive to many, CCV’s statewide presence means that the most affordable option for earning a college degree is in every Vermonter’s backyard. The truth is, as the state’s second largest college, CCV provides essential services for our neighbors, our friends, our relatives, and our communities.

COLLEGE IN MY BACKYARD #CIMBY “CCV has been a wonderful and welcome addition to Main Street. The college contributes to the eclectic mix of downtown Brattleboro. To have a historic landmark in the heart of Brattleboro restored, and to have a tenant in the building that brings hundreds of students to Main Street every day is a real asset for the economic vitality of the town.” Kate O’Connor Executive Director Brattleboro Area Chamber of Commerce

This year, rather than present you with an annual report filled with our writings about the programs CCV offers, we have asked a few of your neighbors to explain how having CCV in their backyard has made a difference. We hope that through these words and the facts and figures we’re presenting, you’ll see how you are helping individuals and communities throughout the state with your generosity. And we’d like to hear your story, too. Please take a moment to visit and tell us your CCV “college in my backyard” story. Thank you.



It is in high school that students decide whether they’ll go on to college or not. We think every high school student should have the option, which is why we have developed robust secondary education offerings. Last year, 840 of 1,345 Vermont dual enrollment students took their classes at CCV. Beyond that, almost 800 high school students enrolled in our Introduction to College Studies course.

“Comcast places a high value on the development of our employees, which is why we continually seek opportunities to support them in reaching their professional and personal goals. One example of how we were able to do that in 2014 was through implementing a pilot program that allowed 13 employees across Vermont to participate in CCV’s Assessment of Prior Learning course at our Vermont headquarters in South Burlington. This course offered them the chance to earn college credit for knowledge they had gained from previous experiences inside and outside of a classroom setting. Ultimately, this program served as a win-win. Our employees got to advance their college education and the company benefits from having a more empowered workforce – all of which was attributable to our partnership with one of our community’s most respected academic institutions.”

Emerson Lynn Editor and Co-Publisher St. Albans Messenger

“Veterans services are important because for veterans, especially those coming back from serving overseas, they’re looking to get into jobs after they’ve done their duty. To do that, they have to bolster their education. When someone tells me they’re looking to get back into college, I tell them CCV’s the most affordable option and that it has an excellent reputation in the state for working with veterans and their family members.”

Erica M. Dean Human Relations Manager Comcast

SMSgt Louis H. Mossey, III 158 FW/Force Development Superintendent Vermont Air National Guard


We believe all veterans deserve a commitment from us to ensure they succeed in college equal to the commitment they made to serve our nation. That’s why 121 staff members from around the state have completed training on how best to serve our veteran and military-connected students.

“Community College of Vermont students who go on to UVM are some of the most successful students at the university. That speaks volumes for CCV and its professionalism, its attention to Vermont’s educational needs, and its leadership. For so many Vermonters, CCV has been the spark that keeps their desire to learn and to achieve alive. This is the college in Vermont that is in some way connected to every community in the state, and CCV brings opportunity to anyone who chooses to embrace it. It’s hard to overvalue CCV’s contribution to Vermont’s educational success.”

The workforce of tomorrow requires training today, and CCV is prepared to deliver that training. Our partnerships with businesses, our workforce-specific programs, and the $500,000 in federal TAACCCT funding we spent last year delivering free courses and career advancement programming translate into a stronger workforce and a stronger Vermont.



CCV pioneered online learning in Vermont, beginning in 1996 with a political science course that featured Sen. Patrick Leahy in a guest chat session. Today, CCV is the state’s largest provider of undergraduate online college courses, offering over 300 courses on the Web each semester.

More than anything, CCV is a place where students feel comfortable, accepted, and encouraged to succeed in college, regardless of their background. Last year, 6,087 CCV students were the first from their families to attend college, comprising more than half of our 11,674 annual student body.



From Main Street in Bennington to Main Street in Newport, our academic centers are part of your community. We are Vermont’s statewide college — 12 academic centers situate us within 25 miles of nearly every household in the state and close to or within Vermont’s major centers of commerce.

REVENUE Vermont is home to experts in nearly every field imaginable and we tap into that expertise. Over 800 medical practitioners, business people, scientists, and others work as part-time faculty teaching our students. At CCV lessons are created from real-life scenarios and delivered by working professionals, ensuring our students receive high-quality, relevant, and practical instruction in their chosen field.
