CENTRAL CONNECTICUT STATE UNIVERSITY

Central Connecticut State University is a regional, comprehensive public university dedicated to learning in the liberal arts and sciences and to education for the professions.  Comprising five schools—Arts & Sciences, Business, Education & Professional Studies, Technology, and Graduate Studies—CCSU offers undergraduate and graduate programs through the Master's and sixth-year levels and the Ed.D. in Educational Leadership.  Committed to offering Connecticut citizens access to distinctive academic programs of high quality, the University is also a responsive and creative intellectual and economic resource for the people and institutions of our state's Capitol Region.  More than 85 percent of CCSU graduates remain in Connecticut, contributing to the intellectual, cultural, and economic health of the state. 

CCSU is, above all else, a vibrant learning-centered community dedicated to teaching and to scholarship.  Education at the undergraduate and graduate level balances academic challenge and personal support, leading students to become thoughtful, responsible, and successful citizens.  A network of study-abroad opportunities, overseas inter-institutional arrangements, and other internationally focused educational programming prepares students to become “global citizens,” responsive to a world of cultural differences and able to succeed in an increasingly international marketplace.

Founded in 1849 as the New Britain Normal School—a teacher-training facility—CCSU is Connecticut's oldest publicly supported institution of higher education.  It became the Teachers College of Connecticut in 1933, and after a period of extensive institutional growth it became the Central Connecticut State College in 1959.  In recognition of the institution's continuous development in mission and aspiration, the present name and educational charter were conferred in 1983.  Honoring our “visionary innovations in undergraduate education,” the Association of American Colleges and Universities selected CCSU as one of only 16 “leadership institutions” in the nation-and the only one in Connecticut. The Princeton Review has honored CCSU as both one of the Best Northeastern Colleges and as a Best Value College.
