Quote from the President
“Norwalk Community College has emerged as a national exemplar of community partnerships to improve student success outcomes, better align curricula with employer needs, and prepare students for the STEM jobs (in science, technology, engineering and math) needed to keep our country competitive.”
- NCC was named one of only three colleges in the nation to lead a STEM Regional Collaborative to educate more students for high-paying “middle skill” STEM jobs.
- NCC launched Connecticut’s first Pathways in Technology Early College High School, in partnership with IBM and the Norwalk Public Schools. This P-Tech Academy enables students in grades 9-14 to graduate with both a high school diploma and an NCC associate degree within six years.
- NCC received a $700,000 grant from the Dalio Foundation to establish the Start2Finish@NCC program, a student success initiative for first-time, full-time freshmen designed to help them persist and graduate with a degree or industry credential.
