Naugatuck Valley Community College Foundation Launches “Jobs on Campus” Campaign

Naugatuck Valley Community College Foundation Launches “Jobs on Campus” Campaign

Thanks to the thoughtful generosity of a supporter from Washington, Connecticut, the NVCC Foundation has launched an initiative to support student jobs on campus. Valerie Friedman, a friend and benefactor to the College led the initiative with a $5,000 contribution to start the campaign, an anonymous donor followed with a matching contribution.  The plan will enable students who are not eligible for financial aid to work on campus between and after classes. Students who do not have to leave the campus for employment have greater academic success. Friedman, a close friend of the College who has been involved with student success programs in the past, noted that “Enabling students to stay on campus and earn what they need to complete their educations is a small price with an important payoff.”

Naugatuck Valley Community College Announces the Appointment of New Associate Dean at Danbury Campus

Naugatuck Valley Community College Announces the Appointment of New Associate Dean at Danbury Campus

Naugatuck Valley Community College has announced the appointment of a new Associate Dean of Danbury to manage the operations of the Danbury Campus. In the summer of 2014, the Danbury location of NVCC was approved to be a campus of the College as opposed to a center. The campus distinction comes as a result of enrollment growth and degree programs. Since it opened in 2008, enrollment in Danbury has grown to over 1,000 students. To accommodate the college’s growing enrollment, a move to a larger 20,000 square foot facility located downtown is planned for the summer of 2015.
