Grow By Degrees, a campaign of the Virginia Business Higher Education Council (VBHEC), aims to fuel Virginia's strong recovery and sustained economic growth through high-impact investments and innovations in our public colleges, universities, and community colleges. The 2020 Vision promises a prosperous, entrepreneurial Virginia that ranks among the top states and countries in educational attainment and personal income. Access to an affordable, high-quality college degree is increasingly a prerequisite for success in the fast-changing, high-tech economy. Virginians who earn college, university, or community college degrees enjoy substantially greater opportunities for good jobs, rewarding careers, high incomes, and positive contributions to the community.
