From its beginnings as a normal school through its rise to a university, CCSU has been providing Connecticut with exemplary teachers, school leaders and health professionals for more than 150 years.

Although our methods and programs have evolved to better serve Connecticut, two things remain unchanged: 1) Our commitment to excellence in program design, content and teaching, and 2) Our commitment to serve our students. These commitments are unwavering and enable us to fulfill our mission to prepare the very best professionals in the fields of education, nursing, athletic training, allied health and social work.

Your gift to the School of Education & Professional Studies will help us keep our commitments to excellence and our students.

The Campaign for CCSUCCESS: Success Begins with CCSU will specifically provide direct support to our students whose professional success benefits us all because they largely stay in Connecticut and become our neighbors, friends, teachers, nurses, social works and more. Your gift will be used to provide scholarships, enhance learning labs, bring distinguished speakers and artists to campus, and support deeply meaningful learning abroad opportunities.
