Post in the Community

Post has a rich and proud tradition of community involvement and social responsibility.

Post University supports our students and associates to work together, to give back to our community and realize the differences we make together. We like to say Post Makes It Personal®… and our efforts truly make us PROUD.

PROUD, an acronym that outlines key areas the University focuses on to achieve a sustained social role in the community. It stands for promoting health and well-being, restoring the environment, opening access to culture and heritage, upskilling for careers, and developing children and young people.

From collecting food donations for area shelters and soup kitchens, to increasing access to the arts, to supporting youth development programs, the University has invested over $200,000 in our Greater Waterbury community. Throughout the year, our Post University faculty and staff contribute their time in a variety of community service events. They volunteered more than 900 hours to organizations including United Way of Greater Waterbury, Greater Waterbury Interfaith Ministry, and Habitat for Humanity.Our student athletes have volunteered over 1674 hours at 49 different opportunities affecting 23 organizations in and around Waterbury.

The University in partnership with local government and our chamber of commerce, is working to re-energize the City. Our investment and move, in 2018, into the landmark Howland Hughes building in downtown Waterbury is an example of reinforcing our commitment to the City and connecting Post’s 129-year history. We are proud to be a catalyst for transforming the downtown area and celebrating its continued growth. Post Makes It Personal®
