1) Norwalk Community College
Norwalk Community College's presence is consistently felt within the community, and its effects on its students are far-reaching and long lasting. Dr. Pamela Edington, the Provost and Dean of Academic Affairs, elaborates with pride. "Norwalk Community College is an outstanding educational institution which serves everyone from preschoolers through to seniors," she says. "I think almost all of the nurses and allied health professionals in Fairfield County have been educated at Norwalk Community College. You can't go into an emergency room without running into one of our graduates." The college is a self-sustaining universe, with a wide range of programs, an after-school program, a family and children's agency, a women's center, a family economic security center and a brand new Science Health and Wellness center. "It's a state-of-the-art building that's certified LEED Gold, the first public building in the state to get Gold certification, I think," says Edington. "We have a state-of-the-art simulation laboratory on our second floor that's essentially like a simulated hospital emergency room." The new building also holds an exercise science program, a fitness area, a graphic design program, a TV studio, various science labs and much, much more. The college is producing about 450 graduates this month. The school is always engaged in the community to the highest degree, whether it's mentoring students at Stamford schools, writing biographies of residents at a nearby senior center or helping students in need with literacy and math. "It's unlikely that someone wouldn't be touched by us in some way or another," says Edington.ncc.commnet.edu
