Carolyn FalahiStudents, Welcome to the Department of Psychological Science’s Student Retention Web Resources Page.  This is an initiative in partnership between the Department of Psychological Science and the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.  A faculty member in the department, Dr. Jason Sikorski, is managing this initiative for our department.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact him at sikorskijaf@ccsu.edu.

The goal of this initiative is to help retain students and increase their chances for success at Central Connecticut State University.  Sometimes students need a little help with their academics or with their medical or psychological health.  The faculty in the Department of Psychological Science is ready to help with mentoring and referrals!  Don’t be shy about reaching out to Dr. Sikorski or any of your faculty members for help!  We are here to support you!
