(This amendment provides additional general fund to Virginia Western Community College for costs of moving two programs to Virginia Western Community College, associated with the merger of the Jefferson College of Health Sciences and Radford University authorized in Chapter 60 of the 2019 Acts of Assembly. As part of the merger, two associate degree programs in Physical Therapy Assistance and Surgical Technology need to be transferred to VWCC. Funding reflects the cost of hiring program faculty and preparing for site visits from the respective accrediting agencies in order to sustain the programs under the current VCCS tuition model.)
