VCAC Celebrates 15 years
Thank you to everyone who makes the impact of VCAC possible! College advisers past and present, school division colleagues, institutional anchors, financial supporters, and other partners.
Increasing the number of low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented high school students who enter and complete higher education.
Virginia College Advising Corps addresses structural inequities in the education system that have systematically advantaged some populations over others. We have a responsibility to our students, our communities, and our Commonwealth to understand how these historical injustices continue to impact current day opportunities and outcomes. We are fierce advocates for low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students, and believe that access to higher education is paramount to racial and economic equity. We are working towards a day when race, socioeconomic status or zip code are no longer factors in educational outcomes.

"I’m eager to advocate for, and provide resources to, students who may not have a complete picture of the post-secondary process. This service experience will let me deepen my understanding of the issues that students face, and inherent barriers they’ll encounter when applying to higher education or making other plans for their future."
