Admin Forum

The Academic Administrative Forum


  1. A place, meeting, or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged.

       Synonyms: meeting, assembly, gathering, rally, conference, seminar, convention, symposium, colloquium, caucus

The Office of the Provost hosts a quarterly Academic Admin Forum for admins and fiscal officers from the various academic units. Typically, we host 150 attendees at Rome Ballroom to share relevant University information. Previous forum topics have ranged from information fairs to student outreach spotlights; from collaborative breakout sessions to teambuilding activities. Our goal is to make the administrative staff in the departments we are responsible for feel valued and included in the decisions and processes of UConn’s administration.

We post updates as future topics and previous Forum materials become available. Check back for information on past and future Forums.

Upcoming Forum Dates

Tuesday, May 19, 2020
Rome Ballroom, Storrs Campus

Due to uncertainty surrounding large group gatherings in the coming months, we have decided to cancel our upcoming May Admin Forum. We hope you are all safe and in good health and look forward to seeing you at Admin Forums in the fall semester.
