COVID-19 update 3.18.20

My Dear Colleagues and Students, 

As we work to become a virtual Naugatuck Valley Community College for the remainder of the spring semester, I recognize that many of you have questions about what this will look like and how it will work. While teaching and learning online – and teleworking – is a novel concept to many of us, our institution has been actively preparing for such a move and is in a good position to continue providing quality educational opportunities while allowing our students, faculty, and staff to practice social distancing as recommended by state experts working to “flatten the curve” of the virus.  

As President Ojakian mentioned in his note to the community yesterday, I will be providing you with additional details before the end of the week on several important areas, including:  

  • Classes that cannot be delivered entirely online.  

  • How to receive critical supports such as academic support, advising, and disability services.  

  • How to access food pantries with campus closed.  

  • How to contact tech support to continue your studies online.  

  • Information on free internet offers for those who don’t have access during the outbreak.  

  • Resources to assist with the transition.  

This is an incredibly stressful time for everyone, and I want to remind you to take a deep breath and prioritize the health and safety of yourself and your family. Even while practicing social distancing, a number of free services are available online to help you manage the stress of this pandemic, including exercise, yoga, and meditation classes.  

I will provide you with further updates very soon.  

Mil gracias y bendiciones,

President Daisy 
Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D.
