Our Common Wealth: an Educated Citizenry for the 21st Century

A Summit on Quality & Value in Virginia's System of Higher Education

2015 Quality Summit

About the Summit

In collaboration with Virginia’s institutions of higher education and the Virginia Assessment Group (VAG), the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) held a one-day summit on quality and value in undergraduate education on June 9, 2015. The summit was an initiative of the statewide strategic plan for higher education. It was designed to engage institutions, government, and the private sector in developing a unified vision that recognizes both the inherent value of higher education and its instrumental value as an engine of economic and personal prosperity. We are guided by the belief that the best way to prepare for a productive life of work and citizenship is to become educated—broadly, deeply, and through critical engagement with meaningful historical and contemporary problems. Our system of higher education is at its most effective when it supports all our students to have such experiences, across all institutions and fields of study.

Goals for the Day

  • To encourage meaningful discussions about quality and utility in undergraduate education.
  • To enable useful new relationships among business, government, and higher education that will promote quality in education and facilitate meeting the needs of society.
  • To identify actions that will improve support for institutions and their students and the contributions they can make to meeting needs of the Commonwealth.
