Note from Dean Mitchell Sakofs
Alumni tell me the following: Who they are and what they value and have accomplished in life are inextricably tied to their CCSU experience. And, they are grateful.
This is true because CCSU is about opportunity for growth & learning through access to quality faculty & programs.
• A student in teacher education who says "When I stood on the Great Wall of China," offers school districts and their students something special.
• Nursing students who travel to Jamaica return to CCSU determined to refine their practitioner skills as they have seen how much can be done with little.
• Social work students who work in the shanty-towns of Peru and South Africa gain skills and perspectives that better prepare them to serve here, in Connecticut.
Personal experiences like these transform lives and represent CCSU's excellence.
Contributions to the School of Education and Professional Studies help make these experiences possible: Our graduates gain experience that is valued by employers and, in turn, affirms the stature of CCSU as one of the premier institutions of higher education in Connecticut.
As you consider how CCSU set the trajectory of your life, please take this opportunity to give in support of our current students. We each stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us and, to be frank, this cycle of support is needed today more than ever.
I made a contribution to the School of Education and Professional Studies because I believe in our work and I invite you to join me in giving to the annual fund.
