VISTA ThumbCMSC has been approved as a host site for the AmeriCorps VISTA program at Connecticut Campus Compact (CTCC). This means CMSC will have a full time person working in our office to develop the online component of a new Downtown Resource Center and to explore new partnerships between universities and communities.  This position is designed to increase the capacity of CMSC and the University of Connecticut’s Department of Extension to work with low income communities and to strengthen our partnership.

Laura Brown, Community & Economic Development Educator with the UConn Department of Extension, a CMSC Professional Affiliate, was instrumental in helping us successfully apply for a VISTA volunteer.
