CCSU is intentionally engaged with the city of New Britain and the wider region. Community engagement is both a method to shape students within a civic-minded campus culture and a means to contribute the intellectual capital and skills of faculty, staff, students, and alumni to the identified needs of the larger community.
Goal 1: Expand the organizational culture of community engagement, so as to increase and broaden the participation in university engagement activities.
Goal 2: Focus time, talents, and resources around an identifiable community need (or limited number of needs), so as to increase the visible impact of the university’s engagement.
Goal 3: Centralize the leadership, coordination, and support for community engagement activities, so as to provide accountability for results.
