Commemorative Gifts

Commemorative gifts are important to any institution. At Central Connecticut State University they have special significance because they connect us to our past, our community, and each other. They keep alive the name and memory of those who have helped us become a center of educational excellence for the people of Connecticut for nearly 170 years. Individuals, families, corporations, and foundations are invited to subscribe for commemorative designations in their name or that of a loved one.
