Southwest Virginia Community College is committed to supporting the exercise of constitutionally protected expression in college-controlled facilities and property while maintaining a safe atmosphere free from disruption. Please see the SWCC Annual Expressive Activity Report for 2021.

  • preserve the integrity and aesthetics of the college’s property.
