New Faculty Luncheon & Staffers

The new faculty luncheon was held on Wednesday, Aug. 23 to give an opportunity for faculty to meet Northwest Vista’s leadership team.

This semester, NVC hired 13 full-time faculty and four full-time temporary faculty. They range in disciplines from Social Sciences, Math, Natural and Physical Science, and Workforce academic programs. Some of the faculty members shared some little-known secrets such as having to use a throw-back flip phone because of breaking too many smartphones; learning how to drive after living in New York; and switching to teaching full time instead of running a business.
