NVCC is committed to meeting the needs of all its students. In an effort to become a Certified “Veteran Friendly Institution,” NVCC has created a welcoming environment for our veterans that includes Vet-to-Vet Mentoring, Services for Veterans with Disabilities, and veteran-focused events in the Oasis Center, a campus lounge dedicated exclusively to veterans. NVCC strives to provide a positive environment to help all veterans obtain a degree from NVCC.

In an effort to increase the outreach to and results from recruiting veterans, the Student Services Unit of the College has recently developed a Vet Net Team made up of representatives from key areas. NVCC’s Vet Net Team is composed of Terry Latella- Counselor, Ben Mattheis-CAPSS Director, Deb DiCicco- F.A. Office/Veterans Affairs, Lisa Calabrese- Admissions, Ed Clancy- Registrar’s Office, and Colleen Hardy-Cashier’s Office.

The Student Services Team is working to improve the veteran’s experience at NVCC through staff development using team webinars on topics such as ”Academic Advising for Military Students.” The College is in the process of completing their “Veteran Friendly” certification.

Dean of Student Services, Sarah Gager commented on NVCC’s commitment to veterans saying,
“NVCC is committed to supporting our veteran students to achieve their academic goals. We have expanded our Vet Net Team to include representation from the Danbury Campus as well as counseling, advising, cashiers, registrars and veterans affairs.”
