The State Bond Commission has approved $2 million to outfit Naugatuck Valley Community College’s new Danbury Campus location with instruction and laboratory equipment, smart classrooms, IT network equipment and furniture. The allocation was approved at the commission’s January 29 meeting.

“We celebrate today with gratitude, hope and joy the good work done at the College and the generous support we receive from so many,” said NVCC President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D. “Today bodes well for our future as an academic community of excellence, engaged in changing the lives of our students for the better, and in contributing in measurable and meaningful ways to the communities we serve. “

“There are so many to be thanked,” continued President De Filippis. “On our campus, Provost Jim Troup, for his steady commitment to the planning process; our Danbury team, Dean Gager and Associate Dean Santiago for their outstanding teaching and mentoring; and our students for their remarkable efforts and excellent results. Our System Office colleagues, led by President Mark Ojakian, in particular Vice President for Facilities Keith Epstein, are to be thanked for their understanding of the importance of our Danbury Campus and for their support of new facilities.  We are eternally grateful to Governor Malloy for his supportive recognition of the work we are doing here together and members of our delegation, in particular, State Senator Joan Hartley and State Representative Jeff Berger, House Chairman of the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee, have been advocates for the College’s two campuses.”

NVCC’s Danbury Campus, currently located at 183 Main Street, is poised to relocate to a 20,000-square-foot facility at 190 Main Street, more than tripling its space in the city. Classes at the new location may begin later this year.
