President's Circle

Membership into the President’s Circle at Naugatuck Valley Community College represents the highest honor a student may receive while matriculating at the College.

These students represent a select group of outstanding achievers who serve as the College’s student ambassadors. Circle Ambassadors have the opportunity to attend major college events with the President and/or her Cabinet, and lend voice to their experiences as NVCC students. Applications are now being accepted.

If you are ready to make a difference...

Circle ambassadors are given platforms to directly engage with community leaders, officials, alumni and friends of the College. You will have an opportunity to:

  • make connections
  • build networks
  • further your own pathway toward becoming an active citizen and leader.

Applicants who are selected by the president and accept membership into the President's Circle will receive recognition, a small scholarship and a letter of recommendation from President De Filippis upon successful completion of their 2-semester term and graduation from NVCC.

"One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind"

- Neil Armstrong

Applications are accepted in the spring for high-achieving students wishing to serve as ambassadors for Naugatuck Valley Community College.

Following up Sunday’s Open House, NVCC hosted the third annual Greater Waterbury Educational Leadership Forum for service region educators on Monday, April 30, 2014. The event is a project of Waterbury Mayor Neil M. O’Leary, who also heads the College’s Regional Advisory Council, and President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D.

Like the Open House, the forum featured information booths and representatives from important academic and student service areas as well as the NV Danbury Center. Counselors, administrators and educators were encouraged to go from booth to booth and chat with representatives to learn more about the unique opportunities offered to incoming students.

Following these morning conversations, remarks by President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D., and Waterbury Mayor Neil M. O’Leary segued into brief presentations on the College’s leadership on PA-1240 developmental education reform, STEM updates and an overview of the upcoming Founder’s Hall Renovation.

Mayor O’Leary thanked President De Filippis for making good on the College’s strategic promise to serve as an engine of change in the Waterbury region.

“The thing I like most about coming here is getting things done,” said Mayor O’Leary.

The College’s addition of the $11.2 million GEAR UP program has increased the College’s presence in Waterbury’s K-12 schools, something that the Mayor “couldn’t be happier with.”

“The difference has been phenomenal,” he said. “Everyone from the different institutions are working together and you can really see the changes starting to happen, which goes to show you the influence that these partnerships can have on our students. In a short period of time, we’ve made monumental strides. We’re getting on the same page, and we’re doing the right thing.”
