Northwest Vista Selected Promising Place to Work

 

Northwest Vista College  is among a list of 18 colleges nationwide selected for the 4th annual “Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges” (PPWCC) award by the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) and  Diverse: Issues in Higher Education .

Northwest Vista College (NVC) is the only local college to receive this award out of 300-qualifying colleges in the United States, and was among just five colleges in Texas to be chosen. 

"This is a significant recognition for Northwest Vista College because we take pride in our values of diversity, openness, synergy and community and believe when we uphold those ideals, it creates a collaborative environment not only for our students, but also our faculty and staff," said NVC President Dr. Ric Baser.

The PPWCC award recognizes community and technical colleges committed to diversity (including race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, class, veterans, and thought) through best-in-class student and staff recruitment and retention practices, inclusive learning and working environments, and meaningful community service and engagement opportunities.

NVC, one of five colleges within the Alamo Colleges District, is the third largest college/university in San Antonio with over 17,000 students. NISOD, or the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development, is a membership organization, celebrating 40 years this year and represents over 300-plus community and technical colleges.

As part of the recognition, the PPWCC colleges will be profiled in Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, and receive “Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges” awards during  NISOD’s International Conference on Teaching and Leadership Excellence  in Austin in late May.
