Black Concerns Commission Mission Statement

The Black Concerns Commission (BCC) of the Virginia Community Colleges Association (VCCA) was founded to:
  • promote the aims of the VCCA as set forth in the governance section of its constitution; 

  • identify and study needs and concerns of Virginia’s community colleges’ Black staff and students and to communicate these to appropriate individuals, agencies, and groups; 

  • operate for educational purposes as they pertain to effective and quality education and training for Black students; 

  • provide a statewide body whereby Black constituents of the community college system can identify, affiliate and network in the interest of effective education and training of Black people; 

  • provide activities designed to sensitize community college staff members to the needs of Black students in academic curriculum development and in the non-academic areas of personal counseling, career/vocational guidance, academic advisement, financial aid, recruitment, and retention.
