Quote from the President
“Norwalk Community College (NCC) is an educational leader and partner in the academic, economic and cultural lives of residents in southwestern Connecticut. NCC is an Achieving the Dream Leader College and a member college of the United Nations Academic Impact. Offering more than 70 degree and certificate programs, NCC empowers students to succeed in the workforce, think critically, embrace diversity and contribute to the economic development of the region. NCC’s extensive involvement with the communities it serves has earned it Community Engagement Classification from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching."
NCC was awarded a $12 million U.S. Department of Labor workforce training grant to develop the Connecticut Health and Life Sciences Career Initiative. NCC leads a consortium of community colleges in developing certifications, industry-recognized credentials and associate degrees to prepare veterans, dislocated and underemployed workers for careers in growing health and life sciences occupations.
NCC’s Center for Science, Health and Wellness, opened in 2011, was the first building in the Connecticut community college system to be awarded LEED Gold Certification. The NCC Foundation raised $20 million to support the center’s construction and infrastructure, and for student and faculty success.
NCC has been named three times to the U.S. President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, a federal recognition for outstanding commitment to civic engagement and community service.
