Governance


The governing board for all 23 colleges in the Virginia Community College System is the State Board for Community Colleges. The Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia appoints the members to this board. Each community college establishes its own local board. The Piedmont Virginia Community College Board provides local leadership and approves items to be recommended to the State Board for consideration. Members of the PVCC Board represent the jurisdictions served by the college.

Members of the community serve on curriculum advisory committees for occupational and technical curricula offered at the college. Committee members are selected from occupational fields that are directly related to the career objectives of programs at PVCC. These committees provide the guidance necessary for planning new programs and ensuring that courses and programs continue to provide instruction in the skills suited for the job market in Central Virginia.

The maintenance and operating budget for the college is provided through appropriations made by the Virginia General Assembly, tuition revenue, as well as contributions from the localities in the service region, grants, and private donations.
