Inquiry, the Journal of the Virginia Community Colleges, offers faculty and staff an outlet to publish professionally, to share research and ideas, and to engage in broader conversations about issues and concerns that impact higher education and community colleges.

Do you have pedagogical strategies to share? Are you developing a redesign or community project at your institution? Have you recently completed graduate work? Inquiry is interested in publishing your work in our peer-reviewed journal. Submissions are reviewed by editors on a continuous basis as we have a rolling deadline, so we encourage you to submit any time. Inquiry is published at least once per year.
