Student Activities/Leadership Development

The Department of Student Activities/Leadership Development (860-832-1990) is located on the second floor of the Student Center and aids all recognized student clubs and organizations in developing many educational, recreational, social, and cultural extracurricular activities. These activities are co-curricular in their goals. One of the major functions of this office is to create opportunities for student leaders to develop, using workshops, seminars, instruction, and a recognition program.

The office is also responsible for advising the Central Activities Network (CAN) and for the general coordination of student activities. CAN is the major social and educational programming body at CCSU and the programming body of the Student Union Board of Governors (SUBOG). CAN will design and implement events and services that meet the varying needs of CCSU students and build community on and off campus. This will be accomplished through the following six programming/service categories of the CAN: social, cultural, educational, recreational, wellness, marketing/promotional. Students volunteer their time and energy to plan and implement over 150 programs a year for the CCSU community, including major events such as Opening Week, Winter Week, and Spring Week.

Students who volunteer with the Central Activities Network gain valuable experience in leadership, teamwork, communication, time management, and budgeting skills. The main component of CAN is fun, friendship, and leadership through programming. The organization is open to all CCSU students and welcomes input and ideas from everyone. For more information, please stop by the CAN office located on the second floor of the Student Center, Room 203, or check out the website at http://stdctr.ccsu.edu/can.
