Central Virginia considers selling campus

LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) -- Central Virginia Community College is considering selling its campus so that it can build a new one.

College officials have approached Liberty University about buying the 102-acre property.

Central Virginia President John Capps tells The News & Advance ( ) that the school needs new facilities and a modern campus.

The school was built in 1966.

Liberty Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. says the university is interested in the property under the right circumstances.

Both Falwell and Capps say discussions have been hypothetical up to this point. But Falwell says a sale is a possibility.

The Virginia Community College System would have to approve the sale. College system spokesman Jeffrey Kraus says the sale also might need approval from the General Assembly and the governor, depending on the details.
