It takes less than a minute to fight for keeping college affordable and talented young people in Virginia.



What is Growth4VA?

Growth4VA is a campaign launched by the Virginia Business Higher Education Council to promote reform and reinvestment in Virginia’s top-ranked higher education system.

Supported by Virginia’s business community, our colleges, universities, and community colleges are stepping up to help grow the Commonwealth’s economy, expand educational and job opportunities for all Virginians, and regain our state’s #1 ranking for business.

Growth4VA’s broad-based grassroots coalition will work towards renewed higher education investment, institution-specific reforms, and stronger partnerships between business, our colleges, and the Commonwealth to address three key challenges: college affordability; marketable degrees and credentials; and a growing economy.
