Boards of Visitors

Boards of Visitors

SCHEV is required by the Code of Virginia to conduct educational programs for all recently-appointed members of the governing boards of Virginia's state-supported colleges and universities. The Code of Virginia mandates that all new appointees attend a SCHEV orientation session within their first two years of service. To this end, the agency hosts an event annually for new members of the 14 Boards of Visitors and the State Board for Community Colleges to help them better understand, exercise, and fulfill their important governing responsibilities.
