Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) serves the 2 million residents of the Northern VA region of the National Capital area. The College is compressed of six fully comprehensive campuses, located in Alexandria, Annandale, Loudon, Manassas, Medical Campus (Springfield), and Woodbridge.

2 With the retirement of Dr. Robert Templin after 12 years of outstanding service as president, NOVA is seeking its next president. The president will be a skilled strategist able to envision, propose, and implement change with a proven record of engaging the college, community, and other external partners in improving student access and success. This president will be able to clearly envision and achieve a 21 st century, esteemed college by institutionalizing an inclusive, results driven planning process that supports the risk taking and innovation necessary to sustain the college s growth and desired student outcomes. The president will develop and maintain strong leadership teams; seek continuous improvement; and foster innovation and technological optimization to successfully facilitate complex, organizational wide change. This compassionate leader will build successful partnerships with highly diverse stakeholders, including the students, faculty and staff, business community, public leaders, multiple governmental bodies, and regional representatives and encourage investment in college programs. He or she will be able to advance regional economic opportunities and workforce development programs to meet employer driven needs. Internally, he or she will ensure operational efficiency, fiscal strength, and college affordability. The Local College Board and college community have identified several areas of potential growth or emphasis for the new president, including: a) continuing to expand student success and access as measured by retention, transfer, and graduation rates, responding to the needs of an evolving, increasingly diverse student base, and strengthening developmental studies success; b) aligning NOVA's academic programs to the region's economic needs to include being a significant provider of workforce solutions for the business community, continuing outreach efforts in the community and the building of partnerships and support at the local, state, and national levels; c) elevating the institutional image of NOVA and cultivating partnerships with local high schools, other two year colleges, four year institutions and other public or private stakeholders; d) increasing NOVA s presence as an active, visible participant in regional workforce development and expanding workforce training and employer services; e) improving levels of full time faculty teaching NOVA s courses; f) continuing to diversify NOVA s funding base by expanding grant funded activities and private, corporate, and foundation fundraising; g) working with NOVA s affiliated foundation and other stakeholders, and developing and implementing plans for the future of the foundation s property holdings; h) maintaining college affordability by working with the other Virginia community colleges and the governing board to moderate the impact of rising costs on students and their families while maintaining the quality and variety of programs and services within the constraints of the state budget; and i) ensuring the sustainability of the college by reducing costs and identifying new revenue streams, optimizing the organizational structure by emphasizing the one college approach across NOVA s six campuses, attracting and retaining highly qualified faculty and staff, and fostering a culture of innovation to further enable and manage the college's continued growth.

3 Faculty NOVA's commitment to academic excellence and intellectual rigor is best exemplified by the 953 full time faculty and some 2,341 adjunct faculty members. Their experience ranges widely from distinguished specialists with 45 years of teaching and research behind them to dynamic young scholars just completing their doctoral studies. The instructional faculty are supported by a dedicated corps of 240 administrative and professional faculty. Staff NOVA is very proud of its workforce, and in turn, those individuals contribute to the successful operation of the college. The college employs some 962 well trained and experienced full time staff members and another 1080 hourly employees, all of whom work within a vibrant community that values their opinions and recognizes the effect their presence has on the life of NOVA. Many of the staff are long time area residents, have invested their entire professional lives in the college, and take great pride in its accomplishments. Students and Student Life More than half of the college s students are 24 years of age or younger; 74% are enrolled in college transfer programs; 40% of NOVA students are enrolled full time.

NOVA students have the opportunity to study abroad through the International Programs Office. As an integral element to its Student Success Agenda, NOVA is developing a comprehensive leadership development program, which will include an emerging leaders program, expanded community engagement and service opportunities for the college s students.

As a result of its location, the college serves a large number of military related students in Fall 2014, more than 4,500 active duty service members, reservists, National Guard personnel, veterans, and their family members enrolled at the college. To support the success of that unique population of students, NOVA has established a Center for Military and Veterans Education.

NOVA S surrounding communities are experiencing unprecedented growth: Loudoun County is the fastest growing county in the United States. Prince William County leads the nation in business growth. Fairfax County annually adds more jobs than any other county in Virginia. With NOVA strategically placed in the midst of these growing communities, the next president must be a visionary leader who can help position the college and its graduates to step into critical roles within the burgeoning industries of defense, technology, healthcare and science, as well as federal government and non governmental organizations that present employment opportunities to NOVA s graduates. Just moments from Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia reflects great energy and rich cultural diversity with people from all over the world calling it home. Northern Virginia is one of the most economically vibrant, affluent, highly educated and diverse regions in the nation. The larger community surrounding NOVA s six campuses offers every possible amenity, including excellent schools, easy access to airports and mass transit, rich cultural heritage and an unparalleled historic foundation.
