New River Community and Technical College changes lives. As an open enrollment institution, we make it possible for people who never dreamed they could obtain a college education to discover their true potential. We also help people upgrade their job skills or acquire new skills so they can pursue meaningful careers and support their families.
In the relatively few years since it was created in 2003, New River has grown into one of the largest and most respected community and technical colleges in West Virginia. Increasingly, business and industry are turning to New River to provide the training that will keep their companies competitive in the global marketplace.
New River's success has been achieved despite the obstacles of rapidly rising enrollment with no corresponding increase in our state appropriation. By aggressively pursuing state and federal grants, we have been able to expand program offerings and have greatly enhanced our online and distance learning capabilities to increase access to educational opportunities within our nine-county service area.
Much has been accomplished, but New River has just begun to transform the economic landscape of our region. We have ambitious plans for the future, but they require a substantial investment to address three critical: facilities, technology infrastructure and scholarships. It will require investment from business and industry, foundations and individuals to provide the facilities, services and technology that will make New River Community and Technical College the premiere community and technical college in West Virginia and beyond.
Your support is critical to the vitality of the region. With your investment, we can Create the Future, providing solutions that will lead to a stable, sustainable economy for southeastern West Virginia.
