Chattahoochee Valley Community College is a community college in Phenix City, Alabama, United States. It serves residents of Russell County and parts of Bullock, Lee, Macon, and Barbour Counties, as well as the Columbus, Georgia metropolitan area. Since 1975 it has shared its campus with Troy University's Phenix City Campus.[1]

The college was established in 1973 as the Chattahoochee Valley State Junior College by an act of the Alabama State Legislature. It opened in January 1974 in a temporary location with 280 students, and in April 1974 had 1,239 students. Local residents donated 103 acres (42 ha) of land for the College's permanent buildings. By 1976, the College had five new permanent buildings and 15 temporary buildings. The college now has eight permanent buildings, with a ninth under construction.[2]

In the 1980s, the "junior" in the college's name was changed to "community". In 1996, the "state" was dropped, resulting in the current name, Chattahoochee Valley Community College.

The first president was Dr. Ralph M. Savage, appointed in October 1973. Subsequent presidents were Dr. James Owen (1980 until 1993), Dr. Richard Federinko (1993 to 2002), and current president Dr. Laurel Blackwell[3] (appointed August 2003).

The Chattahoochee Valley Community College Foundation, an organization associated with the college, raises funds for student scholarships.[4]
