Students diversityMission

The department's focus is to support the mission of the university in the movement towards enhanced diversity as well as being the institution of choice. We assist in attracting students from diverse backgrounds who will benefit from  the richness of the in- and out-of-classroom experience that this university has to offer.

The department offers to undergraduate and graduate students an array of access, retention, internship, and  personal services initiatives and opportunities. There are 11 programs of distinction within the department, including the International Student Advisement Center, Disability Resources Center, Veterans Advisement Center, Tutorial and Writing Center, Study Skills Enrichment Center, Educational Opportunity Program and Summer Educational Oppportunity Program, Connecticut College Achievement Program (ConnCAP), Connecticut College Access and Success Program (ConnCAS), and Gaining Early Awareness for Undergraduate Programs (Gear Up).
