Faculty Handbook

The purpose of this Faculty Handbook is to present those policies, procedures, and regulations of the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) and the Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC or NOVA) that are most likely to apply to members of the faculty. Many of these are taken directly from the VCCS Policy Manual; others are summations or extensions of items in the manual; and the remaining are policies, procedures, and regulations designed specifically for the College.
