College Profile: City Vision College
City Vision College is the accredited Internet-based distance learning program of TechMission. Its mission is to provide practical online education to those involved in nonprofit management, addiction counseling and urban ministry. Academic offices are based in Kansas City, MO with IT, financial and management operations in Boston, MA.
The original curriculum for the college was developed in 1990 as a part of a joint Urban Ministry degree program offered by Grace University and the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions. The AGRM, founded in 1913, is an association of over 300 ministries that help the homeless, addicted and needy in cities throughout North America.
In 1998, the AGRM established its own distance learning program using these courses and called it "Rescue College." In the years that followed, the curriculum was further expanded to create the degree completion program; a Bachelor of Arts in Missions with an urban ministry emphasis. The college was accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council in 2005. In 2008, AGRM transferred ownership of the college to TechMission.
In fall 2008, City Vision College began to offer an Addiction Studies program in partnership with the NET Institute with training in the Twelve Core Functions of the Substance Abuse Counselor. It is designed to prepare students to attain the Certified Addiction Counselor credential in the states in which they reside.
Enrollment is open year round in the college's certificate or degree completion programs. Students may pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree in Missions - with either an urban ministry or nonprofit management emphasis - or a Bachelor of Science in Addiction Studies.
Certificates are awarded to students who complete 30 hours of courses in one of these areas of concentration but do not have sufficient transfer credits to earn a degree. Individual courses can also be taken for personal enrichment and professional development.
Several courses can be used to fulfill the initial educational requirements of the CFRE credential for fundraising professionals and its on-going continuing education requirements. The college is also an Approved Education Provider for NAADAC, the association for addictions professionals.
