Support for Student Success
For more than 150 years and through its growth from Normal School to one of the state's premiere universities, CCSU has maintained a singular mission: to provide for the academic success of our students.
I hope you will join us in helping to make our students' success possible. The University realizes that many students still struggle financially, and we have responded by increasing the amount of financial assistance we provide. We are proud to have increased total financial aid from $53 million to more than $90 million, since 2006. We recognize, however, that that's not enough, so we have challenged ourselves to provide even greater resources for our students. Working with our fiercely loyal alumni and our dedicated friends, I know that, together, we can make a difference in our young people's lives.
Whether you contribute to "give back" to an institution that has helped you achieve success, or out of pride in an institution that is nationally respected, or for whatever reason, your gift makes our students' success possible. And because 85 percent of our graduating students remain in Connecticut, we all benefit when our students succeed.
I invite you to learn more about our new campaign for the University by exploring the plans our academic schools have created to dramatically increase support for students in their programs and by learning more about the many alumni and friends who have so generously supported the University.
