NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (WTNH) — Central Connecticut State University in New Britain is investigating allegations of sexual assault against a student.

CCSU president Zulma R. Toro asked people who may know anything to contact Dr. Craig Wright at its Office for Equity & Inclusion.

Toro issued a statement on the school’s social media about its investigation:

Late today, allegations came to light about a student accused of sexual assault. As soon as I was notified of this information, I directed our new Vice President for Equity & Inclusion Craig Wright to begin an expedited and thorough investigation. If you have any information or were personally aggrieved, please contact Dr. Wright at, as soon as possible.

Vice President for Student Affairs Kellie Byrd Danso is working with her team to ensure appropriate and necessary support is offered to all the parties involved in this situation.

Make no mistake, Central Connecticut State University has a no-tolerance policy—this University does not and will not tolerate any type of sexual misconduct or bullying. We will do everything in our power to ensure our campus is a safe, welcoming environment for all. We are moving as quickly as possible to ensure that this matter is resolved appropriately under the law and our CCSU policies and procedures.

On Friday, CCSU students held a rally against sexual violence.

“I just want people to feel like they are capable of talking to others about the situation because I know, I have been through it myself, and I know how it is to feel like you can’t speak on things,” said Wiktoria Prusaczyk, CCSU sophomore.

Students said a video was posted on social media of a CCSU student allegedly abusing another student.

No additional information was immediately available.
