Job Description   

Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) is one of the largest community colleges in the United States and the largest public educational institution in Virginia. NOVA has more than 71,000 students and 2,600 faculty and staff members. As one of the most internationally diverse colleges in the United States, with a student body consisting of individuals from more than 180 countries, NOVA is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive, and equitable Virginia by fostering excellence in higher education. NOVA is committed to the principles of access, opportunity, student success, and excellence by meeting the educational and training needs of the region and its people with excellent and affordable courses and programs, offered by an inspired and committed diverse faculty and support staff.


With six unique locations throughout our region, each conveniently located within 40 miles of Washington D.C, we have Northern Virginia covered. NOVA’s Alexandria Campus is located seven miles from the nation’s capital, just across the Potomac River from Washington DC; the Annandale Campus, with its urban feel and suburban appeal, is ranked as the most diverse in Virginia and boasts a thriving Koreatown; the Loudoun Campus is located in a comfortable suburb steeped in colonial history; the Manassas Campus is located next to Manassas Battlefield Park, site of the first major battle of the Civil War; the Woodbridge Campus is home to municipal parks, state parks, and national wildlife refuges; and the Medical Education Campus, located in Springfield, is a uniquely specialized campus that stands apart from what most community colleges can offer, with the area boasting an abundance of hiking and biking trails, and parks with nature and wildlife areas.


NOVA offers an opportunity to make a difference with outstanding career opportunities and competitive total rewards benefits, including a comprehensive health and dental insurance program, generous paid leave, deferred compensation plans, paid parental leave, state employee discounts, and a solid and secure retirement system. NOVA embraces opportunities to create a college community that is a welcoming and inclusive place to learn and work. We do this by fostering a sense of belonging and ensuring equity while maintaining an open, civil, and safe environment for our students, faculty, staff, and guests. In so doing, NOVA fulfills its mission to offer world-class teaching and learning to the Commonwealth of Virginia.


The security of our students, faculty, and staff is very important at NOVA. Please take a moment to review NOVA’s Annual Security Reports.


The Coordinator for NOVA’s Quality Enhancement Plan is responsible for the implementation, communication, and assessment of NOVA’s QEP: Writing Ourselves In: Developing Our Voices for Equity and Success, which focuses on developing students’ writing skills through inclusive and culturally responsive pedagogies combined with problem-centered, active-learning strategies and transparently designed assignments.


The Coordinator reports to the Vice President of Academic Affairs/Chief Academic Officer and collaborates closely with the Dean of English. The Coordinator manages the implementation and assessment of the QEP; oversees the daily operations, budget, and progress reports; and communicates with SACSCOC and the college community. In addition to comprehensive management of the project, the QEP Coordinator collaborates with the QEP Faculty Leads at each campus to ensure all QEP stakeholders—full-time, adjunct, and dual enrollment faculty; instructional designers; librarians; writing tutors; administrators; and students—receive the information and resources they need to effectively implement and assess the QEP. The Coordinator works with the QEP Faculty Leads, QEP Pedagogy Fellows, and other entities at the college to plan, implement, and refine the professional development activities central to the implementation, including the annual QEP Fellows Summer Institutes, virtual online modules, and professional learning communities.
