University Opportunity Programs

 

University Opportunity Programs (UOP) are high impact success programs and services for students from underserved and other unique populations, including those who are academically underprepared, first-generation, lower-income or undocumented. Student groups served by UOP include Achievement First (Hartford & New Haven), DREAM.US, Higher Edge, Promise Scholars (Hartford & New Haven), and STEP/CAP. UOP staff collaborate across campus to create a student-centered learning environment that fosters academic excellence, student engagement and progress to graduation.  The program builds strategic relationships with campus and community partners, community colleges, and alumni to expand postsecondary educational opportunities.
