NVCC Alumnus, Dr. Robert Hartmann McNamara Inspires Students to  Succeed in College

NVCC Alumnus, Dr. Robert Hartmann McNamara Inspires Students to Succeed in College

Associate Provost and Dean of The Citadel Graduate College Returns to His Alma Mater

Unassuming and down-to-earth is how one might describe Dr. Robert McNamara, a 1984 graduate of Mattatuck Community College, who was invited to speak with NVCC students on October 28, 2014 about his path to student success. In a written biography that he shared with students at the beginning of the event, he described himself as “an ordinary guy who was provided some extraordinary opportunities.” Dr. McNamara’s story is one of challenges, not unfamiliar to some students in the audience.

NVCC Students and Staff Partner with Habitat for Humanity to Rebuild Home Devasted by Hurricane Sandy

Volunteers travel to New Jersey as part of Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge

On August 4, seven NVCC students and three faculty and staff members packed for a week-long trip to the shore.  However, instead of beach chairs and sunscreen, they packed their vans with hammers and paint brushes and traveled to Neptune, New Jersey, an area hit hard by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012 to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge.  Although much of the rebuilding has occurred in the town, some families are still in great need nearly two years since the super storm hit.
