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

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.”

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.”
