Richard Bland College Announces Support for Growth4VA Campaign
Richard Bland College of William & Mary announced its support of the newly-launched Growth4VA campaign, which will focus on promoting reform and reinvestment in Virginia’s top-ranked higher education system. The campaign, backed by a partnership of higher education and business leaders, aims to help grow the Virginia economy, expand access to education and job opportunities for all Virginians, and regain Virginia’s #1 ranking for business.
Virginia’s colleges, including Richard Bland College, are stepping up to help achieve these goals. Working with our partners in the business community, we will be offering practical policies and creative ideas focused on four strategies:
- Make Virginia the Top State for Talent
- Become recognized as the Home of Innovators and Entrepreneurs
- Prepare Virginians for Great Jobs and Great Lives
- Provide Affordable Access for All Virginians
“Richard Bland College of William and Mary wholeheartedly supports Growth4VA, which seeks to improve education and job opportunities throughout Virginia,” says President Debbie Sydow. “Innovation, excellence and affordability are the hallmarks of Richard Bland College.”
Growth4VA is a campaign of the Virginia Business Higher Education Council and has been endorsed by all 15 of Virginia’s public higher education institutions and the Virginia Community College System. www.Growth4VA.com.
