Virginia21's Academic Alliance is a new coalition of our partners in protecting and enhancing higher education here in Virginia. The Academic Alliance is composed of policy leaders and higher education experts from across the state, and their support is crucial to giving our students the tools they need to effectively advocate on the issues that matter most to them.

Virginia21's Academic Alliance is a coalition of higher education leaders and experts who have joined us in providing increased access, quality curricula, and well-rounded experiences at the Commonwealth's higher education institutions.

Support from the Academic Alliance is critically important to the work of Virginia21 as we fight to increase access to a quality postsecondary education for all Virginians.
