The Board of Trustees of the Vermont State Colleges System has carefully considered the proposal for system transformation outlined in the reports released from the state’s Select Committee on the Future of Public Higher Education in Vermont.
Using the Select Committee’s reports as a guide, the Vermont State Colleges System developed a project plan for system organization, governance, and operational model transformation that is fiscally sustainable and fulfills its mission of delivering an affordable, accessible, high quality, student-centered, workforce-relevant education for Vermonters in measured stages to be completed within five years.
A High-Level Plan for evaluation of Select Committee recommendations was approved at the December 17, 2020 Board of Trustees Executive Committee meeting.
VSCS Structural Transformation Preliminary Analysis was submitted to the Board of Trustees at the January 8, 2021 meeting.
On February 17, 2020, the Board of Trustees heard verbal public comment on the Select Committee’s proposal. The session was recorded and is available at www.vsc.edu/live. In addition, the Board received written public comment from January 8th – February 17th. Those comments are available at this link.
On February 22, 2021, the Board of Trustees considered the project plan for system transformation presented by the Chancellor and voted to approve the plan.
