As part of NOVA’s Achieving the Dream (ATD) initiative, students were given a prominent role during this year’s Convocation. Nine current and former NOVA students, representing all six campuses, participated in a panel called “From Dreams to Goals to Success.”
Students shared their academic experiences and gave their perspectives on the challenges community colleges face. They also discussed the various types of support that faculty and staff provided that helped them achieve their academic success.
The session was facilitated by ATD Chair Molly Lynch and Frances Villagran-Glover, Alexandria dean of learning and technology resources.
