Academic Deans coordinate with professors within their department to address any academic integrity issues that arise. Major offenses or repeated academic integrity violations may be referred to the Dean of Students as a violation of the Student Code of Conduct.

Campus Assessment, Response and Evaluation (CARE) Teams operate on the principle that early intervention is the best way to prevent a crisis situation. Each of NOVA’s campuses, Extended Learning Institute (ELI) and Workforce Development has a CARE Team that coordinates support and strategies for students who may be distressed, struggling or in need of resources.

Deans of Students/Conduct Officers are responsible for the administration of disciplinary procedures when a student has violated the Student Code of Conduct.

Department of Human Resources(HR) is responsible for addressing concerns involving college faculty and staff. There are dedicated HR employee specialists who coordinate intervention and support for faculty and staff.

NOVACares Case Managers serve as a liaison between students, the mental health community, CARE teams and the Threat Assessment Team. Case Managers may work with high risk students in order to help facilitate their success at the College.

NOVA Police play a vital role in assisting with criminal investigations, ensuring the safety of individuals at risk, addressing concerns and managing campus threats.
