Southside Virginia Community College is Committed to Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action and Diversity

Our College is committed to providing equal employment and educational opportunity for all employees, job applicants and students without regard to race, sex, color, national origin, religion, age, veteran status, political affiliation, genetics, or disability in accordance with the Governor's Executive Order on Equal Opportunity and state and federal laws. The college will reasonably accommodate qualified individuals with disabilities whenever the individual is otherwise qualified to safely perform all essential functions of the position. Equal opportunity extends to all aspects of employment including hiring, transfers, promotions, training, terminations, working conditions, compensation, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment.  Southside complies with federal and state equal employment opportunity laws and strives to keep the workplace free from all forms of unlawful discrimination, including harassment and retaliation.

Unlawful discrimination in any form is a serious offense that will not be tolerated in state employment.  The Department of Human Resource Management's Policies and Procedures Manual sets forth the relevant policies of the Commonwealth.  If you believe you are a victim of unlawful discrimination, several avenues of redress are available to you, including filing a complaint with SVCC's EEO Coordinator, Vice President of Finance and Administration at 434-949-1005, the grievance procedure, and the state and federal discrimination complaint processes.

Chancellor's Teaching Fellows Program

The Chancellor’s Teaching Fellows Program is designed to extend our recruitment efforts to applicants who have traditionally not been candidates for employment within the VCCS. Our goal is to build a more robust recruiting pool from which to select the best part-time faculty. The program is open to everyone regardless of background and is offered at all 23 colleges. The goal is to have an applicant pool that reflects the richness and diversity of Virginia. There are two types of Fellowships available: the Minority Professional Teaching Fellows and the Graduate Student Teaching Fellows.

 Application Steps

Making an application for a job at SVCC is as simple as 1 - 2 - 3!

1 - Search for open positions at SVCC by viewing our Current Openings link above.

2 - Click View under the job title of the position(s) to read and print the details of each posting.

3 - To Apply for a specific position, select the "APPLY FOR THIS POSTING" button. This will initiate the online application process.

It is important that all documents needed to complete the application process be ready and available before starting and that as you complete the application that you continually "SAVE" your information. To protect the security of your data, the system will log you out if it detects no activity for 30 minutes. This will cause all unsaved information to be lost.

We suggest that you have the following information readily accessible prior to starting your application on-line:

  • Employment History - Name, address and telephone numbers of your present and previous employer(s) including immediate supervisor's contact information. Additionally, a list of the duties and responsibilities of each position you held.
  • Educational Background - Name and address of all educational institutions you attended.
  • References - Names, addresses and telephone numbers of at least three references.
  • Electronic copies of any documents (such as resume, cover letter and transcripts) you wish to attach to your application.  Online applications are stored on a secured site. Only authorized employees and hiring authorities have access to the information submitted.

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Southside Virginia Community College will provide, if requested, reasonable accommodation to applicants in need of access to the application, interviewing and selection process(es).
