Program Information

What is UConn Connects?

UConn Connects serves as an intervention program to help students be more successful. Students may participate in the UConn Connects program on a semester by semester basis.

UConn Connects pairs each student with a faculty, staff or peer facilitator who will guide them through the semester.  Students and Facilitators will meet to go over course work and academic progress on a weekly basis. The facilitator provides the student with a variety of resources, support and list of workshops offered by the AAC. The facilitators are highly knowledgeable about the University and are trained to help the student with specific concerns and issues that may arise during the semester.

In order to assure academic growth and skill development, evaluations take place throughout the semester. The first evaluation consists of a self-assessment of academic strengths and weaknesses, including such topics as time management, note-taking, and writing skills. The same instrument is used at the end of the semester to assist the student in determining further developmental needs. In the past, students who have active participated in the program have shown dramatic increases in their grade point average (GPA).

We are no longer accepting enrollment for UConn Connects for the Spring Semester. Please visit us in the Academic Achievement Center (ROWE 217) for additional assistance. Thank you!
