State Bond Commission Approves Funding for Naugatuck Valley Community College’s Allied Health Center

At its January 30 meeting, the State Bond Commission approved a $39 million allocation--the largest ever in the history of the college--to bond the renovation of Founders Hall. Founders Hall is the original home of Waterbury State Technical College when it was established in 1964, a building with much history and beloved by many of the college’s founding faculty and alumni. President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D., described the commission’s approval as “a powerful event.”  The President noted that, “The College’s allied health programs are outstanding and deserve more support and better space. The proposed project will have the entrance of our new Center for Health Sciences face the rest of the campus, providing an east campus anchor and a sense of powerful completion.” President De Filippis cited the Governor’s understanding of the significance that NVCC’s Allied Health and Nursing programs have in the region and thanked him for his “vision and continued support.”
