President’s Welcome

The mind once enlightened cannot again become dark.
–Thomas Paine

From its origins more than four decades ago, Quinebaug Valley Community College has been the portal for thousands of students to begin or continue their college or career studies. Educating people of all ages from all walks of life, QVCC focuses on improving the quality of life for everyone who enters its doors.

At QVCC’s two locations in Danielson and Willimantic, you’ll find an amazing energy. In our corridors you can feel the pulse of learning, as students and faculty alike engage in lively conversation and debate. Here women and men puzzle out the issues that shape our world - from terrorism to technology, religious persecution to social justice.

You’ll also discover that QVCC offers a robust campus life brimming with student clubs, organizations, and cultural activities. The College’s LiR program offers amazing courses for its members aged 50 and over who embrace the value of lifelong learning - and the QVCC Foundation works tirelessly to provide financial support to students. (In fact, in the past four years, no QVCC student has graduated with any federal debt.)

As you peruse the pages of this catalog, you’ll discover for yourself the rich array of opportunities that QVCC provides - from allied health, business, human services, and technologies to visual arts, advanced manufacturing, education, and accounting. Whatever your career goal, you’ll be taught by first-rate faculty who demonstrate a passion for teaching and active learning.

I look forward to seeing you on campus!
