Alumni & Friends Association

The Central Virginia Community College Alumni Association was founded in 1999 and its mission is to afford opportunities for CVCC Alumni to serve and be served by the college, and to strengthen the bonds of the alumni through interaction with and among other alumni.

CVCC’s almost 17,000 alumni are the most valuable resource the college has within the Central Virginia community. Alumni are lifelong supporters of the college through advocating for CVCC with high school students, businesses, and legislators; donating personal wealth; volunteering time and professional expertise to current students and other alumni; and supporting fundraising events that sustain the Alumni Scholarship Program, offered for the children of CVCC Alumni.

Governed by an elected board of alumni, the CVCC Alumni & Friends Association seeks to also give back to alumni. Through membership in the Alumni & Friends Association, alumni are afforded opportunities to gather at Alumni affairs, receive discounts from local businesses that support the Alumni & Friends Association mission, and take part in new opportunities that will be strictly for Alumni & Friends Association members.

Each year, a CVCC Outstanding Alumnus is chosen from among those nominated for the honor to serve as the key speaker for the annual Commencement Exercises. In order to participate in this process, go to www.centralvirginia.edu/alumni and complete the nomination form. The Alumni & Friends Association continues in its support of CVCC as the college changes and adapts with the times and yet maintains it purpose, integrity, and vision. Alumni are welcomed and invited to join the Association as well as update their information at www.centralvirginia.edu/alumni.
