As a result of the recommendations of the JLARC, the VCCS invited teams from each of Virginia’s 23 Community Colleges to participate in a meeting to create a system-wide strategic plan to support students at risk for not completing. NOVA took nine advising professionals—including faculty and professional advisors, advising administrators, and Vice President for Student Services, Dr. Villagran-Glover—to participated in two day-long sessions. Updates in support from the VCCS’ Student Success Center were presented as well as a focus on mapping processes with a Design Thinking – student centered perspective. NOVA took away valuable information in what students experience through our processes. Participants also learned about the innovative student services that our colleagues at other Virginia Community Colleges utilize.
