Our Women Leaders

Our Women Leaders
Women are thriving in leadership roles at NVCC. In the field of academia, which was once male-dominated, these NVCC women demonstrate how women can launch their own careers and command respect and admiration for how they do their jobs.

Colleges Where Women Succeed

Certain universities are specifically known for the opportunities they offer to women. Here are some co-ed and all women’s colleges that are recognized as being especially conducive to the success of women:

Agnes Scott College near Atlanta, Georgia is one college known for its high standards. Agnes Scott strives to “educate women to think deeply, live honorably and engage the intellectual and social challenges of their time,” according to the mission statement. The college says that almost half of its students will study abroad before graduating, making it a great school for women looking for worldly experience.

New Technology Encourages Traditional Learning

All of my classes are paperless. It’s not because I’m a tech-wiz; in fact, I’m “all thumbs” when it comes to new technology. I tell students that doing classwork on Blackboard increases their computer literacy and equips them for the 21st century workforce. I really do believe this, but I have another reason: digitizing take-home assignments has let me be a more old-fashioned teacher.

Digitizing Education = Independent Learners

We are no longer prophesizing the digital age of education and the role of technology in learning. We are living it. Students apply online for college. They web-register for classes. They can buy e-textbooks and submit their assignments electronically. The digital format of education that is prevalent from kindergarten to college has developed for the technological generation.

Social Media’s Bad Influence

Social Media’s Bad Influence
It is time for women to start embracing the fact that they are beautiful.  It shouldn’t matter how much they weigh or the amount of wrinkles they have on their faces; everyone is unique and beautiful.

From Italy, With Love: March

Ciao a tutti dalla splendida città di Firenze! (Hello to all from the beautiful city of Florence!) 

This month, I’d like to share two very important things with you. First, if you plan to study in a country where English is not the main language, study as much of the language as you can before arriving. Second, leave the American bubble behind and really get acclimated to the place.

White House Pushes for Free Community Colleges

White House Pushes for Free Community Colleges
President Barack Obama announced that he wants to make community colleges completely “free for everybody who is willing to work for it.”  Obama proposed the idea following several states’ decisions to offer a free community college education to residents. The proposal, titled America’s College Promise, is a plan to provide students of any age enrollment in a community college without paying for tuition. Students must maintain a GPA of 2.5 and be registered full-time or half-time to be eligible.
