We invite your campus group or department to become a CCSU Compassion Partner and make a commitment to weave the principle of compassion into the fabric of university life.
By intentionally making compassion a dynamic force on the campus, CCSU will foster a more mindful and compassionate staff and faculty, promote scholarly inquiry and research on compassion, and increase community engagement and service learning.
