This site provides the College community and its friends a resource for news and for information about how NOVA's students and faculty extend their teaching and learning to international experiences and perspectives. NOVA benefits from the convergence of many cultures, the richness of its students' and teachers' backgrounds, and a globally focused institutional mission.

Drawing on these resources and those of one of the world's most international cities, NOVA builds global competence through a broad range of learning experiences and welcomes new opportunities from across the globe to expand them.
