Meet Our Staff

The University of Connecticut welcomes our new and returning students, faculty, and staff back to our campuses. In continuing our work with public health experts and our state to maintain a quality UConn educational experience while keeping our community healthy, we encourage prospective students and families to engage with our admissions office virtually. Virtual information sessions and one-on-one chats with an admissions officer are available to you daily. Visit reopen.uconn.edu for more information.
