Welcome to the Office of the Provost at the University of Connecticut. As a world-class institution of higher education, UConn strives to improve the lives of its students and enhance the economic and social well-being of the state and its citizens.
We believe, that as a public institution, it is important to push the potential of the human mind and to ensure we continue to strive in becoming an institution that fosters collaboration to help advance the future of humanity.
The University of Connecticut is home to over eighty-five Centers and Institutes which have been established to promote scholarly activity and/or support teaching, research, diversity or the outreach mission of the institution.
The University recognizes that Centers/Institutes require a commitment of resources and has developed guidelines regarding criteria for their establishment and review. These guidelines and a schedule for the review of Academic Centers/Institutes can be found on the Provost’s Office website.
New Centers/Institutes require the Provost’s approval. For any additions or edits to the listing of Centers/Institutes below, please contact Brandon Murray in the Provost’s Office.
