Phyllis Palmiero is the new director of the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV). She has been SCHEV’s acting director since August 1999.

As director, Palmiero says she is committed to “making SCHEV thrive so we can fulfill the richness of our potential–not just for ourselves, but for the benefit of the entire commonwealth.” She identified promoting broad access to a college education and advocating greater accountability in Virginia universities as two other priorities.

Palmiero served as SCHEV’s deputy director for administration from 1998 to 1999, and before that as deputy director for policy at the Virginia Department of Planning and Budget from 1996 to 1998.
