The Community College of Vermont is part of the Vermont State Colleges System and is governed by the VSCS Board of Trustees. Each of the four Vermont State Colleges reports to the Chancellor, who in turn reports to the VSCS Board of Trustees.
CCV’s chief executive officer is the President, who operates within the policies and procedures of the VSCS Board of Trustees. The president has final decision-making authority concerning the internal affairs of the College and is advised by the President’s Council.
Joyce Judy has been president of CCV since 2009. A special focus of her work is on expanding access to higher education for all Vermonters, from high school students taking college courses to adult students seeking new career opportunities. She has overseen the development of a broad number of workforce education initiatives and has been a statewide leader in increasing the number of students who continue their education after high school.
By expanding CCV’s relationships with the philanthropic community, Judy has achieved significant growth in private support for CCV initiatives, including several scholarship programs, the Introduction to College and Careers course to improve college-going rates of Vermont high school students, and enhanced services to veteran and military students.
Judy serves on the New England Board of Higher Education Executive Board, the Vermont Public Radio Board of Trustees, the UVM Health Network/Central Vermont Medical Center Board of Trustees, the Vermont Higher Education Council, the Vermont Business Roundtable, and the College Board Community College Advisory Group.
