This study of the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) was conducted to provide a basis for the comprehensive restructuring of the VCCS system offices and for the reduction of staffing levels. Part I provides background on the study, and its limitations, assumptions, and procedures. Part II outlines the purpose of the VCCS system offices and delineates the responsibilities of the State Board for Community Colleges, the Chancellor of Community Colleges, and the system offices. Part III provides an overview of the functional analysis that was conducted of the system offices, offering information on the offices' current organization and staffing and including recommendations with respect to each of the offices and divisions within the VCCS. Proposals for restructuring the offices are presented in part IV, which includes a suggested organizational chart, position modifications, and reduced staffing levels. The bulk of the report consists of appendices, which include statutes and resolutions pertaining to the VCCS, information on transitions in the major central office from 1971 to 1983, the functional analysis of the system offices, and recommendations of the Governor's Task Force on Science and Technology related to the community colleges.
