About Virginia Western

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity is a core value at Virginia Western Community College. We are committed to promoting a culture and practice of inclusion and empowerment.

Virginia Western defines diversity as the celebration of the unique contributions of all individuals, stemming from, but not limited to, the traditional categories of age, disability, ethnicity, gender, race, national origin, religion, sexual orientation and socio-economic status.

We are Western--a college community united in our individuality.

Join us on January 18, 2021 for the MLK Day of Service!

Anita Chambers

I'm Anita...

  • I am an Assistant Professor and Clinical Coordinator in the Associate Degree Nursing program at Virginia Western. I started here in 2014 part-time and became full-time in 2015.
  • I was born in Lynchburg, VA. I have lived in Richmond, VA & Northern Virginia.
  • I came to Roanoke because of Virginia Western. A former colleague encouraged me to apply as a part-time Clinical Adjunct and I did. A full-time position came open the following year and I applied and was accepted. For quick mini-vacations, my husband and I would always come to Roanoke because of its close proximity to home, the mountains and trails, and the downtown shops.
  • I love to read, write poetry and travel. If I could live at the beach or by water, I would. It is so soothing to me and relaxing.
  • I love the people I work with and I love the diversity of students that I have the opportunity to interact with. When I onboard/orient new faculty, I let them know that they have not just entered a team, but they have just become part of a family of professional instructors.
