Announcing ReNew CSCU

CSCU is excited to begin a new partnership with Social Impact Partners, formerly known as SVP-CT. Social Impact Partners is generously providing CSCU with pro bono consulting support to assist us in developing and setting future strategic priorities. These priorities will lead to a stronger CSCU and investment case for the biennium that resonates with both internal and external stakeholders.




This collaboration will engage a wide range of stakeholders that includes faculty, staff, students, alumni, employers, government officials and community leaders. The purpose of the stakeholder engagement work is to gain a deeper understanding of CSCU, to strengthen the overall system, and to identify future synergistic partnership opportunities. The Social Impact Partners team will listen to gain insights that will inform our strategic priorities; this work will also foster unity among various stakeholders, creating a stronger CSCU.



Social Impact Partners works closely with organizations to reimagine, design, and implement systems that deliver equitable outcomes for all people. They recently collaborated with the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood serving as lead project planner/consultant for the Blue Ribbon Panel on Child Care. This partnership resulted in the creation of a comprehensive Blue Ribbon Panel Report, which has played a crucial role in shaping Connecticut’s policy and strategic initiatives.
