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.
