The NCC Foundation is celebrating our 50th Anniversary in 2015-2016. Working with NCC President David L. Levinson, Ph.D. to determine the most urgent needs of the College, our goal is to raise $5 million to support the following five key initiatives:
- Student Success and Scholarships
- Transfer Scholarships for High-Achieving Graduates
- Faculty and Program Support
- Entrepreneurship and Workforce Development
- Unrestricted Gifts Answer the Greatest Need
Norwalk Community College was founded in 1961 and is the oldest public two-year college in Connecticut, with an annual enrollment of nearly 15,000 students in both credit and non-credit programs. NCC has served over 170,000 students to date and more Fairfield County students attend NCC than any other post-secondary institution.
Recognizing that Connecticut has the largest K-12 academic achievement gap in the nation,* NCC embraces the diverse needs of its students and provides an environment that empowers individuals to reach their highest potential. From the infant enrolled in NCC’s Child Development Lab School to the retiree who joins the Lifetime Learners Institute on campus, we are a resource for all ages.
NCC is truly the educational center of our community, providing opportunities for intellectual inquiry, open dialogue, multicultural awareness and lifelong learning. The majority of NCC graduates continue to live in Fairfield County, providing an educated and committed workforce for local employers. When NCC students succeed, our community succeeds.
