Center for Academic Programs

The Center for Academic Programs (CAP) increases access to higher education for high-potential students who come from underrepresented ethnic or economic backgrounds and/or are first-generation college students.

CAP prepares students for successful entry into, retention in, and graduation from a post-secondary institution through its constituent programs: Educational Talent Search and state funded initiatives that provide programming to increase middle and high school students’ college access and retention; Student Support Services provides programming to facilitate students’ retention in and graduation from the University of Connecticut.

CAP designs and implements these programs in accordance with guidelines set forth by its funding bodies, including the University, the U.S. Department of Education, and other programs which promote educational opportunity for all.

Center for Judaic and Middle Eastern Studies

The Center offers credit courses within the academic curriculum in the Humanities, as well as non-credit outreach programs for the community at large in all areas of Judaic culture, literature, and history, from antiquity to modern times, Israel, and Middle Eastern literature and politics, and in interfaith studies. Now celebrating its thirty-fourth anniversary, the Center has created a learning community around itself which gathers for intellectual pursuits and discussions of scholarly and contemporary issues.
