UConn Connects is seeking Faculty and Staff Mentors to assist students in achieving their academic and personal goals. In its 26th year of supporting students’ success, UConn Connects is the University’s largest volunteer mentoring program offered by the Academic Achievement Center (AAC). UConn Connects is an academic intervention program, designed to provide students with the skills and support needed for academic success. Connects Mentors meet with student mentees on a weekly basis to advise, guide and support them as they navigate the university. This rewarding opportunity directly impacts UConn’s retention efforts. Faculty and Staff members from all areas are welcome. A brief training will be provided.
