Dr. Howard Spearman

Welcome to the ... Golden Eagles Family!

You will often hear me say “we are RVC Strong because our community is strong.” RVC Strong means a lot of different things, but what does it mean to you as a student? It means you are a part of something bigger than yourself. It means you have a community of faculty, staff, administrators, and fellow students who are here to support you to make sure your time at RVC is not only a success, but an experience you will look back on years from now and remember as life-changing.

We are a student-focused institution. That means everyone who works here, in everything we do, should be focused on making RVC a better place for you to learn, grow, and thrive.

We do that through faculty engagement with students. We do it by providing you with valuable resources, including peer tutoring, academic advising, personal counseling, and online learning support. We do it by providing opportunities to immerse yourself in the RVC culture through community engagement, student organizations, campus events, athletics, intramurals, and the arts.

At Rock Valley College, we are dedicated to providing you access to exceptional education and training opportunities integrated with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. This is a place where everyone should feel a sense of belonging. Together, we are the Golden Eagles family.

Stay RVC Strong.
