What makes your college a great place to work?

Presidential Statement

Blue Ridge Community College is a wonderful place to work because the people care about what they do and why they do it. The College serves a compelling need in our community, and employees do all they can to help our students achieve great success. As a result, we have an atmosphere of caring that pervades the institution and enriches the relationships we have as colleagues and friends. Despite the challenges we sometimes face, people want to work here because we know that together, we can overcome any obstacle to support one other and our students as we strive to serve the educational needs of our community.
