The First Year Experience Program at Norwalk Community College has been recognized as a Program of Promise by the National Organization for Student Success for 2020-2021. NOSS seeks to recognize programs that are using effective and/or promising practices that promote student success and development. Such programs are recognized for their successes and potential as models for other programs. NOSS is taking this opportunity to identify and celebrate a wide range of successful programs. Therefore, the NOSS Executive Board created the Programs of Promise: Outstanding Program Recognition to honor and recognize exceptional programs that exemplify the mission of NOSS.
Maria Buchta (FYE Coordinator) and Forrest Helvie (then-AEFYE chair) will attend an awards recognition event at the NOSS 2022 conference in Atlanta to receive this recognition for their work during the 2020-2021 academic year.
