Norwalk Community College is coming to Stamford!
NCC’s Continuing Education and Workforce Development Division is now collaborating with Stamford Adult & Continuing Education to offer five popular non-credit courses and certificates at The Old Town Hall in the heart of downtown Stamford.
“We are excited to be working with the Stamford Adult Education program to provide NCC continuing education opportunities in Stamford,” said Kristina Testa-Buzzee, Ed.D., NCC Associate Dean of Continuing Education and Workforce Development. “While we are starting small, we hope to explore further collaborations to meet the community and business workforce needs.”
Having a Stamford presence will make it easier for the many students who live or work in the Stamford region to further their education and enhance their marketable skills, said NCC President David L. Levinson, Ph.D.
The majority of NCC students actually come from Stamford (32.8%); followed by Norwalk (28.9%).
