CCSU: A National Leader in Undergraduate Education

At CCSU, you’ll get a world-class education from professors who have world-class credentials.


Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) offers a range and quality of educational programs matched by very few other universities. In fact, CCSU was honored as one of only 16 “Lead-ership Institutions” in the nation by the Association of American Colleges & Uni-ver-sities. CCSU was recognized for its “visionary innovations in under-graduate education.” Also called out for special recognition was CCSU’s strong support for students both inside and outside the classroom. CCSU professors work to serve all their students and provide them the personal attention they need for academic success. As one student recently said, “There are great professors at CCSU, and they will help you every step of the way.”

The intellectual growth inspired by the faculty often leads to success in “the real world” after graduation - a fact noted by The Princeton Review when it selected CCSU as one of “The Best Northeastern Col-leges” and as one of “America’s Best Value Colleges.” Excellent education and exceptional value are just two of the many reasons that more and more of New England’s top students are choosing to go to CCSU.

First-Year Experience
Students begin working toward success even as they enter the campus for the first time. CCSU’s distinctive First-Year Experience (FYE) program estab-lishes a special bond between professor and student by providing each first-year student with a faculty mentor who introduces the student to the complexities of college learning and living and helps the student develop the skills necessary for academic success. In part a “learning-how-to-learn” program aiding the transition from high school to college, the FYE also serves as a gateway program for students to explore potential majors. Classes are kept small and follow a seminar approach, which engages both students and professor in the mutual enterprise of learning. Students and FYE faculty develop long-lasting relationships that span the students’ entire careers at CCSU.

Honors Program
Central Connecticut State University’s Honors Program pro-vides academically qualified students with exceptional learning opportunities. Limited to no more than 50 selected students each year, the program is both challenging and rewarding: classes (kept small) are designed to be academically rigorous, and students who succeed in the program are provided half or full scholarships covering in-state tuition. Taught by interdisciplinary teams of faculty, classes are designed to promote debate and discussion and the acquisition of critical-thinking skills - the foundational skills necessary for intellectual growth, civic participation, and success after college - however a student defines “success.”

World-Class Faculty Providing a World-Class Education
Stanford, Harvard, Columbia, Cornell, Penn, MIT, Rensselaer, Duke - these are just some of the distinguished universities from which CCSU professors have earned their PhDs. At CCSU, you’ll get a world-class education from professors who have world-class credentials. And all classes at CCSU are taught by professors, not graduate assistants. While CCSU professors do produce award-winning scholarly research and appear frequently as expert commentators on national TV programs, their first calling is teaching. And they practice their vocation with a deep commitment to student learning. At CCSU, they mean it when they say, “Students first.”

Start with a Dream...
Finish with a future. That’s the CCSU slogan, but it’s much more than that.
