VPA Position


Revision of Title 23, Educational Institutions. Creates proposed Title 23.1 (Institutions of Higher Education; Other Educational and Cultural Institutions) as a revision of existing Title 23 (Educational Institutions). Proposed Title 23.1 consists of 32 chapters divided into five subtitles: Subtitle I (General Provisions); Subtitle II (Students and Campus); Subtitle III (Management and Financing); Subtitle IV (Public Institutions of Higher Education); and Subtitle V (Other Educational and Cultural Institutions). The bill organizes the laws in a more logical manner, removes obsolete and duplicative provisions, and improves the structure and clarity of statutes pertaining to institutions of higher education and other educational and cultural institutions in the Commonwealth. The bill is a recommendation of the Virginia Code Commission and has a delayed effective date of October 1, 2016.
§ 23.1-2406. Additional powers of the Authority; police.
A. The Authority may adopt and enforce reasonable policies, procedures, and regulations governing (i) access to, conduct in or on, and use of its property and facilities and the surrounding streets, sidewalks, and other public areas and (ii) other matters affecting the safety and security of Authority property and individuals using or occupying Authority property. Such policies, procedures, and regulations have the force and effect of law (a) after publication one time in full in a newspaper of general circulation in the locality where the affected property is located and (b) when posted where the individuals using such property may conveniently see them.

§ 23.1-104
3. Any sale pursuant to this subsection shall be preceded by reasonable notice of the sale, taking into consideration the type and value of property. Such notice shall include at minimum the posting on a student bulletin board and publication in a school newspaper. The institution, by the same time, shall mail notice of the sale to the last known address of any person that the institution determines to reasonably appear to be the owner.
