NACP COVID-19 Update
Due to the unfortunate event of COVID-19 the NACP Office will for the time being remained physically closed. Although we are unable to welcome new students, staff and faculty in an in-person setting, we will still engage with the UConn community virtually.
Historically, our people have faced the real and traumatic outcomes of various pandemics since the very start of settler-colonial contact. It is our duty as descendants of our ancestors to uphold their strength and resilience by prioritizing the health and well-being of our community. We hope you can understand and apologize for any inconvenience.
Per University guidelines, we will begin the Fall 2020 semester with all events and program taking place virtually. Although the conditions of this academic semester are not ideal, it is our hope to organize and promote our programming as usual, if not more.
Woliwoni Thank you again for your understanding. If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
