Interim Dean of Student Services
Welcome to Quinebaug Valley Community College. I am currently in my 12th year at QVCC and my third year as dean. I am really excited about the excellent choice you have made in deciding to attend QVCC. Not only is it a great educational and economic value, the faculty and staff are dedicated to helping you meet your academic goals.
The Student Services division is made up of offices that support you in your academic endeavors: Admissions, Advising, Career Services, College Career Pathways, Disability Services, Financial Aid, Marketing, the Records Office, Veterans Services and the Willimantic Center.
Visit our new Student Success Center, located across from the cafeteria in Danielson.This one-stop shop is dedicated to helping you with all your core student service needs. Bring any of your questions to the front window and we will make sure you get the help you need. At the Willimantic Center, we are excited about the Learners, Leaders, Partners (LLP) program. LLP is a grant funded program that provides students with a designated advisor, supplemental trips and activities, a first year learning community, and work programs.
We also implemented a new program in the fall of 2013 called “Connect for Success”. Each member of the Student Services staff are acting as "mentors" for first year students to help assist with the transition to college, providing guidance for college services, tips for handling stress or anything a student might want to discuss. The program was successful in the fall and spring and will continue in fall 2014 with faculty.
The key word that Student Services is focusing on for you is success . Finishing college takes work. If you invest in yourself by dedicating the time and energy needed to succeed, our staff is prepared to help you reach that success.
Recently we celebrated our 42th Commencement. A record class of over 300 hundred students graduated. We are very proud that all of our graduates received their diploma debt free. Our financial aid office has been operating as a financial grant office for the last 4 years. With all the reporting on the dangers of student QVCC provides a low cost high value education debt free.
