Current Initiatives - Achieving the Dream

With the goal of student success and completion, NOVA has implemented several major interventions to better support students as they attain their goals. These practices are implemented on 2 levels:

College-wide Practices
Initiatives led by the President and Administrative Council

Campus-level Practices
Initiatives led by the faculty and staff that are implemented at the campus level


College-Wide Practices

NOVA will be completing Achieving the Dream’s Institutional Capacity Assessment Tool (ICAT) in the Spring 2020 to better inform institutional practices and prepare the College for bold, holistic change for Student Success. Please be on the look out for emails from your campus Provost.

Campus Level Practices

Campus Teams will be supporting the process of administering Achieving the Dream’s Institutional Capacity Assessment Tool (ICAT) in the Spring 2020.

After the results from the ICAT, Campus Teams will host a Capacity Cafe. The Capacity Cafe is a facilitated workshop held on your campus to help you analyze and learn from your survey results. As a campus, you will work together to analyze the results from the survey and form solutions that the ATD can put into action! Once the College completes the ICAT and Capacity Cafes, we will develop a 3 year action plan to move the student success needle.
