Join Us on a Journey

The CCSU Student Handbook states that it is in the best interest of students “to help create a world, a community, and a campus of compassion, equality, and justice for all people”, and

That Central Connecticut State University aspires to be a community of learners, and to be recognized for graduating broadly educated, culturally and globally aware studentswho contribute to their communities as engaged professionals and citizens, and

As leaders in an academic community, it is our responsibility to role model behavior that fosters mutual respect and provides a safe environment for all human beings regardless of race, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, disability, and socioeconomic status, and

This principle of compassion is embodied in the Charter of Compassion, a document that transcends ideological, religious, and national differences, and is supported by leading thinkers from religious and non-religious traditions throughout the world, and

Compassion has the power to break down political, dogmatic, ideological, and religious boundaries, and promote a fulfilled humanity through improved human relationships and ethical behavior, and

Scientific research has shown that compassion and loving relationships play a critical role in childhood development and the emotional health and well-being of all humans, and

That service is a strong part of CCSU’s heritage in which students, faculty, staff, and alumni engage with others to improve their community.
