This report describes the Michigan Community College Virtual Learning Collaborative (MCCVLC), an innovative educational environment that provides learners access to high-quality courses through a variety of technologies. The following describe the collaborative's guiding principles: (1) faculty and staff at all Michigan community colleges will have the opportunity to contribute to academic, training, and service programming; (2) each Michigan community college will have the opportunity to access programming from other participating colleges; and (3) traditional and nontraditional community college students will have access to services and programs. The collaborative's key components are the governance board, central staff, advisory teams, shared services, virtual colleges, virtual learning providers, advisory council, and indirect customer groups. This document discusses each component in detail and contains an organizational chart that outlines their relationships. Finally, MCCVLC's goals are presented: (1) to develop the high-quality human, technological, and programmatic capacity that allows Michigan community colleges to survive and thrive in a virtual environment; (2) to serve current markets well, while expanding access to under-served populations; (3) to provide access to product and service deliverables in a seamless manner; and (4) to build a collaborative that allows partners to develop individually as well as collectively. The document concludes with specific objectives and a financial plan. (EMH)
