The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) recently announced that Jill Mitchell, Associate Professor of Accounting at Northern Virginia Community College’s (NOVA) Annandale Campus, was selected for the 2019 Virginia Outstanding Faculty Awards (OFA).
Since 1987 the OFA has recognized faculty at Virginia’s institutions of higher learning who exemplify the highest standards of scholarship, teaching, mentoring, community service and research. This award is the most esteemed honor for faculty at Virginia’s public and private colleges and universities. Approximately 12 winners are selected each year from campuses large and small, from two- and four-year institutions. The list of winners for 2019 can be found on the SCHEV website. Mitchell is the only community college faculty winner this year for the state, and the first accounting professor in 25 years to receive the award.
