Complete 2021 – A Six Year Strategic Plan for Virginia’s Community Colleges

Complete 2021 Logo

Virginia’s community colleges serve an estimated 400,000 people across the state. The opportunities we provide include some of the most cutting-edge and highly-demanded training and education available. 

But, simply accessing those opportunities is no longer enough. You have to earn a credential to make it count toward a career. 

Over the next ten years, Virginia will need to fill 1.5 million jobs. The majority of these jobs will require a postsecondary credential – an associate’s degree and the certifications and licensures that are our bread-and-butter.

To accommodate the demand for these middle-skill-level jobs (more than a high school degree but less than a bachelor’s), Virginia’s Community Colleges are embarking on a new six-year strategic plan to triple the number of credentials that our students earn by the year 2021.
