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, undocumented or in high school. Student groups served by UOP include Achievement First (Hartford & New Haven), DREAM.US, Higher Edge, Promise Scholars (Hartford & New Haven), and STEPCAP. UOP staff collaborate across campus to create a student-centered learning environment that fosters academic excellence, student engagement and progress to graduation, and builds strategic relationships with campus and community partners, local K-12 schools and community colleges, and alumni to expand postsecondary educational opportunities.
