Department of Athletics
Mission Statement

The mission of the Intercollegiate Athletics Program at Central Connecticut State University is to contribute positively to the personal development of students by providing a wide range of opportunities for participation in sports, on either a highly- competitive NCAA Division I or recreational level.

The Intercollegiate Athletics Program contributes to the vitality of campus life by providing entertaining, highly-competitive sporting events for the campus and community at large. In this sense, it serves as one of the principle centers of campus life because it contributes to the development of campus identity and community.

Athletics are an appropriate and important component of the Central Connecticut State University experience because they embody many of the intrinsic values and goals of education at our University, in particular, the striving to achieve excellence in all manifestations of human life and the enrichment of the human spirit.

The mission of the Intercollegiate Athletics Program is inextricably tied to the mission of the University. Therefore, as Central Connecticut State University aspires to become one of the best public, comprehensive universities in the nation and the finest in New England, the Intercollegiate Athletics Program similarly aspires to become one of the best athletics programs among comparable universities in the region and nation.
