For nearly 170 years, CCSU has been a leader in public higher education, driven by the strength of our connections.
We strive to be connected to our past, to our community, and to each other in our effort to be of better service to our communities and the state of Connecticut. By teaching and embracing the value of connection, we cultivate a welcoming, inclusive, and respectful academic environment.
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.
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.
Our beautiful campus in metropolitan New Britain offers state-of-the-art academic buildings, abundant green spaces, safe, accessible walkways, and more, creating a welcoming environment that instills pride in our students, faculty, and alumni.
The Annual Fund Campaign raises funds to support every aspect of a CCSU experience, not only providing scholarship opportunities, but also enabling the University to be responsive to challenges and opportunities.
Please make a gift to the Annual Fund today, and consider joining the True Blue Society by making a recurring gift. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
