RBC ON THE RISE
Message from: President Debbie L. Sydow, Ph.D.
Viewed from any perspective, Richard Bland College is on the rise. This fall, RBC enrollment grew by more than twenty percent (20%), and based on growing interest, we are sanguine about projections for future enrollment. As a new model for higher education in Virginia, RBC offers flexible and personalized study options, work-based learning, and high-value credentials to high school, college and adult students throughout the Commonwealth. RBC’s affordable, one-size-fits one approach is different.
At RBC, we believe in the power of difference, and this second edition of Inside RBC Magazine features stories that highlight our rich diversity of pro- grams, partnerships and people. Whether you read the magazine from cover to cover, select stories of particular interest, or just flip through the pictures, I hope you will be inspired by what you find.
From the arrival of un- manned aircraft at the new DroneUp Flight Academy at RBC, to the increase of research and innovation grants that support student persistence, to the promotion of faculty profiles through our Study With Me campaign, Richard Bland College is on the rise.
