NOVA selected Dr. Anne M. Kress as the College’s next president. Dr. Kress has 30 years of community college experience, spanning from her time at Florida’s Santa Fe Community College to her most recent position as president of Monroe Community College in Rochester, NY.
“I am honored, humbled, and excited to have been selected. NOVA has always been bold and innovative: a national leader that consistently sets the bar for excellence and then surpasses it,” said Dr. Kress. “During my visit, it was immediately clear that NOVA’s talented faculty and staff are the heart that gives life to the college’s mission. Every day, thanks to their work, amazing and inspiring students find their pathway to the American Dream in a region that values both their success and the outstanding institution that makes this opportunity a reality. I am truly grateful for the chance to be part of such a dynamic and diverse academic community, and I look forward to working with all of NOVA, the Board, partners in Northern Virginia, and the VCCS in service of this important and vital mission.”
