NOVA Mission and Vision

In recent years, NOVA worked as an institution to formally define its mission and vision. Although these statements are short, they provide guiding principles to shape our work. They are also key components to keep in mind and reference when doing branding work.


With commitment to the principles of access, opportunity, student success, and excellence, the mission of Northern Virginia Community College is to deliver world-class, in-person and online postsecondary teaching, learning, and workforce development to ensure our region and the Commonwealth of Virginia have an educated population and a globally competitive workforce.


NOVA’s vision is to be a learning-centered organization that promotes student success.
