The Power of One: Engage. Enlighten. Empower .


The Division of Student Affairs at Eastern Connecticut State University strives to foster a cultured sense of awareness amongst our students. Through promoting public awareness, civic engagement, inclusion, healthy lifestyle choices and intercultural sensitivity, we engage students in opportunities for personal growth and enrichment. This environment enlightens and broadens our students' understanding of diversity and multicultural understanding. Our co-curricular education is strengthened working collectively as a community of scholars, including members of the faculty and staff, collaborating to optimize student learning.


For the 2013-14 Academic Year, the Division has chosen the theme: "The Power of One: Engage. Enlighten. Empower."


The Power of One will focus on empowering students to go beyond their understanding of the social, cultural and personal ethics they possess.  The programs and dialogues offered will heighten students' awareness of social systems that foster both equity and inequality in communities and society.  Through cross-cultural understanding and global dialogues, The Power of One will engage, enlighten, and empower students' collaboration with faculty, staff and community members while developing diverse groups rooted in integrity and inclusive excellence.
