    Ever wonder what it's like to work on an archeological dig? Want to kick-start your journalism career with an internship at ESPN? Or maybe you want to see your work in an ad campaign. Our academic programs go beyond the classroom—way beyond, from neighboring communities to cities around the globe.


    Engaging the Community

    At Central you'll find an abundance of opportunities to engage our communities and to learn-by-doing in local schools, businesses, and clinics; to create art; to innovate business; to inspire others; and to enjoy a place to relax and have fun with each other and our neighbors.

    In 2010, the Carnegie Foundation designated CCSU a Community Engaged Institution.
