CONNECT Program
CONNECT summer 2022

The Challenging Ourselves in a New and Nurturing Environment by Coming Together (CONNECT) Program is designed to help students that have been historically excluded from higher education (People of Color, first-generation and/or high financial need) thrive at UNH.


The 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 and through college.

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