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 mentor who will guide them through the semester. Students and Mentors will meet to go over course work and academic progress on a weekly basis. The mentor provides the student with a variety of resources, support and list of workshops offered by the AAC. The mentors 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 the past, students who have active participated in the program have shown dramatic increases in their grade point average (GPA).
