SWVCC“Southwest Virginia Community College strives to make diversity in recruitment a key component of our student and personnel outreach. Southwest is located in a geographically remote region of Virginia, sitting in the foothills of the magnificent Clinch Mountain Range. Because of its location in the heart of Appalachia, diversity recruitment can often be challenging. To overcome this challenge, SWCC reaches out to its minority communities through scholarships, programming and events that honor the contributions of diverse populations. In addition, the college works to ensure that the success of each student, regardless of ethnicity, is made a core part of its mission.”
