The Community College of Vermont (CCV) is a two year college founded in 1970 with locations in 12 sites in the state of Vermontmarker. The college is a part of the Vermont State Colleges, a consortium of Vermont's five public colleges governed by a common board of trustees, chancellor, and Council of Presidents. Each of the five colleges has its own president and deans. As of 2008, the college had the lowest cost per credit hour in Vermont , and the second largest number of students in the state, the largest being the University of Vermontmarker.

In addition to its 17 associate degree programs and 11 certificate programs, the College offers an Assessment of Prior Learning course, through which students may obtain credit for knowledge acquired outside the classroom, an Introduction to College Studies course designed for high school students, and two study abroad opportunities annually.

History

In 2008, CCV purchased the 22,000 square foot building of the defunct Woodbury College in Montpelier.

Union organizing campaign

In 2006 the American Federation of Teachers, which represents instructors at other colleges in the Vermont State Colleges system, organized a unionizing campaign. The college opposed the unionization effort partially through a mailing effort, and the majority of the faculty voted not to unionize in September, 2006.
