Challenging Ourselves in a New and Nurturing Environment by Coming Together (CONNECT) Program was founded in 1994 through a joint partnership with the Diversity Support Coalition (DSC), the late Dr. Roger M. Beattie (Special Assistant to the Vice Provost for Enrollment Management), and Dr. Judy Spiller (Assistant Vice Provost for Academic Support Services). It is designed to help students that have been historically excluded from higher education (People of Color,  first-generation and/or  high financial need) thrive in their transition  to college.

All CONNECT students are assigned a Peer Mentor (based on college major) who works yearlong to support their academic, personal, and professional goals. CONNECT's primary goal is to support students as they complete their undergraduate degree through providing academic support, social programs, and collaborations with key UNH resources.
