Central Connecticut State University is the largest university within the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities system. Founded in 1849, CCSU is also the state's oldest publicly funded university. The University welcomed its 13th president, Dr. Zulma R. Toro, in January of 2017. She is the university’s first female president and its first Hispanic chief executive.
The University comprises four academic schools — the School of Business, the School of Engineering, Science, & Technology, the School of Graduate Studies, and the School of Education & Professional Studies — and the Carol A. Ammon College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. As a comprehensive public university, we provide broad access to quality degree programs at the baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral levels.
CCSU is a driving force of the economic, social, cultural, and intellectual development of Connecticut, an enabler of social mobility, and a committed community partner. The integration of the liberal arts into the University’s professional programs provides the foundation needed to prepare a flexible, engaged, and adaptable workforce. More than 85 percent of our graduates remain in Connecticut; as s...uch, Central is a vital pipeline for an array of professions in the public, private, and non-profit sectors, including engineering, social services, health care, law enforcement, education, business, and industry, among others.
Central is one of few universities in Connecticut to be designated by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as a Community Engagement University. To earn and maintain this designation, CCSU must make a commitment to partner with the communities it serves to lend them its resources and expertise in solving their most pressing challenges.
This connection to community is a fundamental part of a CCSU education. It distinguishes our university from our sister institutions; it sets our students apart from their peers; and it builds upon our legacy of academic excellence and equity in education.
