We Are UConn Nation.

In 1883, six students graduated from the Storrs Agricultural School with two-year certificates. Since that time, thousands of students have received degrees from the Ratcliffe Hicks School of Agriculture and the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources (CAHNR). Regardless of when they graduated or what they studied, our alumni are always a part of the CAHNR community.

Academic Programs' goal is to help students identify an appropriate major and realize their educational aspirations. While the University of Connecticut is a relatively large institution, we pride ourselves on the small college "feel" that we facilitate by making students our number one priority.
