Good morning and welcome to Naugatuck Valley Community College, our home and yours. I am grateful the weather did not deter you from coming this morning. Whatever conditions outdoors, please know that for us you’ve brought the sun and that because of you, this is a beautiful and warm day!
It is a joy to welcome you this afternoon to our fifth community meeting and to thank you for joining us for an update on our first year’s implementation of “Toward a Splendid College: Naugatuck Valley Community College Strategic Plan: 2013-2016”. This is a good opportunity for us to hear your comments about our common interests as we map out the work to be undertaken in the next academic year.
The family has gathered again to highlight our progress since last year and to suggest ways to address our mutual commitments for the future.
I thank everyone for all you do each and every day for our students, and in particular, I thank our colleagues in Admissions, the Center for Academic Planning and Student Success, the Office of Financial Aid, the Registrar, the Business Office, Cashier’s Office, Public Safety and Academic Affairs for their support of advisement and registration.
I thank you all for your continued engagement and hard work, evident in the success of our students.
