Help Name Our New Strategic Plan

From now through the end of 2015, Virginia Western will be working to develop a new strategic plan to replace Vision 2013 and its extension, ReVision 2015. Our strategic plan will coordinate with the new VCCS strategic plan, currently in draft as "Complete 2021", which focuses on increasing the number of credentials earned by students.
As a first step in the development of our own strategic plan, please complete a quick survey at http://tinyurl.com/VW-Tagline to help us name it.
We will be asking for your input in other areas as the plan is developed. If you have other ideas for our strategic plan, you may email them to StrategicPlan@virginiawestern.edu.

Fall 2014 Student IDs


The new Student ID Office is located in Room S307 of the Student Life Center

The ID office will be open on Thursday, August 21. 

Fall ID office schedule (minus holidays and school closings):

Monday – Thursday        8:00 AM – 6:00 PM

Friday                                 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM

 Students who need a new ID need to bring a copy of their fall schedule with their name on the schedule printed July 28 or later, phone or tablet schedules from the Virginia Western app are also acceptable. Students must bring a government issued photo ID along with their EMPLID number.

 Students with VWCC IDs just need to bring a copy of their schedule to get their Fall 2014 sticker. We no longer have open computer terminals next to our ID office, so students must have their schedules before they come to the office.

Questions about IDs, email Nick Owens at nowens@virginiawestern.edu

Achievement Day – Employee Recognition Event – Get Your Free Sundae!

Employee Achievement Day

Natural Science Center

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.


Remember when we were growing up our parents always taught us that you shouldn’t brag about yourself because it wasn’t socially acceptable? During Employee Achievement Day we are going to break the rules and get caught red handed bragging not only about ourselves but our peers as well! Take the time to brag about your peer and don’t forget let’s not be modest and share with us your achievements on the “Caught Red Handed Bragging Board”! Virginia Western has a lot to brag about their employees so let’s fill up this board! The completed recognition board will be displayed at the schools and divisions throughout the college on a rotating monthly schedule over the next year. Be sure to check it out!

Achievement Day is also a time to recognize that you tirelessly serve college customers each and every day; therefore, on this day our presidential staff and deans want to serve you… ice cream! Our ice cream scoopers will provide you with the base of a sundae for you to make on your own with a variety of condiments that will be available to build your perfect sundae!

Out of our ice cream scoopers, who will be the super scooper? Will it be Dr. Sandel, Dr. Wilmer, Cheryl Miller, Debbie Yancey, Amy Anguiano, Lori Baker, John Anderson or Carole Graham? Make sure to recognize these “scoopers” by completing a red hand in their honor! We have a lot to brag about these extraordinary employees!
