After the announcement of the projected $1 million budget deficit and the layoffs and other measures that have followed, WVC has created a webpage to answer common questions about the current budget deficit situation.

The website, wvc.edu/Budget, includes the press release about layoffs sent today, and answers questions concerning:

  • Budget deficit and enrollment
  • WVC funding
  • Closing the deficit
  • Academic programs
  • Capital
  • New buildings
  • The future of WVC

This page was created by the college to keep our service district informed.

“We value the positive relationships with our communities within Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties,” said WVC President Jim Richardson. “We want to ensure they know what’s going on, who will be affected and what’s being done to fix it.”
