Campus Partner Presentations

UConn offers an abundance of campus-partner presentations on a particular topic for your UNIV course. Offices generally like to receive presentation requests by the second week of classes in a semester, but have discretion to schedule presentations after this soft deadline. Three presentations are required for UNIV 1800 and 1810, while other presentations are optional.

 

Required Experiences
