Community colleges, like their four-year counterparts, must be able to attract and retain top quality faculty who are committed to the mission of the institution, the role it plays in addressing workforce needs and ultimately the success of their students. However, the ability to attract and retain top-notch faculty for both academic and certificate programs in high demand fields has become increasingly challenging.
If NOVA is to maintain a competitive edge in preparing our workforce, it must have access to individuals who are responsible for shaping and refining the occupational and technical skills in various fields. Endowed faculty professorships are crucial for recruiting and retaining the highest-quality faculty. The greatest institutions have the best minds and the most-engaged teachers.
One professor or department chair can touch hundreds of lives through the courses they teach, the students they mentor, or through their own academic work. Funding can propel research, help pay student workers or create opportunities for collaboration with scholars around the world.
