Southside Virginia Community College Administration is here to serve the students and community through our vision and mission.
That's how it is at Southside Virginia Community College. You'll never be lost in the crowd or treated like a number on a computer printout. What you will find are faculty, staff and administrators who do their best for students of all ages to provide a quality educational program for transfer to four-year colleges and universities and an occupational-technical program to educate, train and retrain workers for Southside business and industry.
SVCC serves primarily the residents of the city of Emporia and the counties of Brunswick, Buckingham, Charlotte, Cumberland, Greensville, Halifax (partial), Lunenburg, Mecklenburg, Nottoway, and Prince Edward. This represents an area of approximately 4,200 square miles. The college operates under the guidance of a local board and is financed primarily by tuition revenues and state funds, supplemented by contributions from the participating localities and federal funds.
