For the past fifty-six years, Naugatuck Valley Community College has been an engine of change in the lives of our students and in the communities, we serve through strong relationships with Connecticut agencies that promote educational, labor, economic, and community development initiatives. NVCC has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as one of the top 25 community colleges nationwide in advancing opportunities for low-income students and in 2018, the Aspen Institute selected NVCC as one of the top 150 community colleges of excellence in the nation. In 2019, the National Science Foundation-funded NVCC’s grant proposal to increase the number of low-income, academically talented students with demonstrated financial need who obtain degrees in STEM and enter the workforce or graduate programs. The NVCC Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center was selected as one of 10 national finalists for the 2019 Bellwether Award in the area of workforce development, and the College receives generous support from local industry partners such as Praxair, Inc. to educate and train the manufacturing workforce of tomorrow.
