Quote from the President
“John Tyler Community College uniquely serves its community by focusing on the specialized needs of all 10 of its service area political jurisdictions. These range from rural to urban, from affluent to much less so, from well-educated to much less so, and from blue collar to white collar. The college has one of the most diverse service regions in the commonwealth of Virginia and one of the geographically largest. The institution must react swiftly to new demands on its expertise and resources, and it does.”
