Serving the Military: One Campus Perspective.
Mustachio, James; Sylvas, Lionel B.
An overview is presented of the educational services offered by the Woodbridge Campus of Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC-W) to two local military installations. The paper examines the historical basis for providing educational services to the military; the Woodbridge Campus's long-term commitment to serving the military community; and the special needs of active-duty military personnel. The paper describes the operations of the campus programs on the two installations, focusing on active communication, cooperation, administrative liaison, and integration of resources. This section offers specific examples of campus and base services provided to respond to the needs of the military student. A discussion is then presented of the methods used to develop courses, disseminate course information, and teach the courses offered. Finally, the paper analyzes quality control mechanisms with respect to maintaining and improving academic standards. (LAL)
