ABOUT UCONN STRONG
Since 2000, UConn Strong has followed one simple mission - to lead in advancing and serving its community of members, and the industry at large. No other association provides more ways for its members to connect with the people and resources they need to be successful, and we’re incredibly proud of what we have to offer.

We believe the future looks bright for Connecticut's flagship university. UConn Nation is at its best when faced with challenges. The Covid-19 pandemic was all that and more. UConn rose to the occasion, making difficult budget decisions while keeping students, faculty and staff safe. The role of UConn Health in fighting the pandemic, led by Agwunobi, is something for all of us to view with pride.
Despite this critical role, the legacy unfunded pension obligations facing UConn and the UConn Health Center dramatically impact their ability to continue this leadership role. We urge our supporters to reach out to members of the General Assembly and the Governor to eliminate this burden so UConn can compete with their peers on a level playing field and bring critical research funding to Connecticut.
