Annual Report

Vermonters are united by challenge. Whether recovering from Tropical Storm Irene, making tough decisions on Town Meeting Day, or simply helping a neighbor in need, Vermonters find solutions by working together.

CCV brings this philosophy to higher education. We are proud to work alongside businesses, schools, and community members, shaping our institution to better respond to the changing needs of our state. CCV has served 142,000 students since 1973. 95% of our students are Vermonters, and 85% of our graduates have stayed in the state, joining the workforce to address the most complex challenges our families and communities face.

In this annual report, we explore five of those challenges: the child care shortage, the opiate epidemic, the manufacturing skills gap, the nursing shortage, and the growing need for cybersecurity. We also introduce alumni whose CCV education has enabled them to work toward solutions.

Each year, CCV serves more Vermonters than any other college in the state. Many of them overcome their own challenges on the way to a degree: The majority are the first in their family to go to college. More than three-quarters work full-time jobs while attending school. Some are single parents, and others are new Americans. Almost all depend on financial support in the forms of grants and scholarships. Without it, CCV graduates wouldn’t be where they are today.

We invite you to join our collaborative effort to meet today’s challenges through education. Our challenge to you is to support our students by contributing to an endowed scholarship fund. Your gifts are an investment in Vermont, allowing our students—and our communities—to benefit for generations to come.

We look forward to working alongside you.

No matter where you live in Vermont, a CCV Academic Center is close to you!

  • "As I was teaching at CCV I found I was getting the most from my students when we were out in the field – they really responded to that learning style – so I helped to develop classes in the environmental science program that maximize hands-on-learning."
