The Code of Virginia charges the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) to develop a statewide strategic plan for higher education (the Virginia Plan for Higher Education). The Code specifies that the plan: includes statutory goals for higher education in the Commonwealth; identifies a coordinated approach to such state and regional goals; and emphasizes the future needs for higher education in Virginia. The Virginia Plan for Higher Education included extensive stakeholder engagement as part of its development and subsequent release in 2014.
The Code language pertaining to the statewide strategic plan for higher education requires a six-year review to ensure that the plan remains relevant to the Commonwealth’s needs. The six-year review process began in late summer 2019 with input on key issues facing higher education in Virginia both in the near and long term.
If you have not already provided input to SCHEV as part of the six-year review, please take a few minutes to complete the survey below to ensure The Plan remains relevant in meeting the needs of the Commonwealth.
