Family Engagement

The Knight’s Court – UB’s Family Association

Family members play an important role in a UB student’s education. Each and every day our students are doing amazing things and as a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or sibling you should be proud. At the University of Bridgeport we hope that family members will be engaged with the campus community. We welcome you to visit campus, attend Welcome Back Weekend each fall, read news from campus on our website, in the family association newsletter, The Knight’s Court, and in Knightlines. Another way family can be engaged is by showing their support for all the students at UB is with a gift to our annual fund.

The annual fund at UB creates opportunity for students. The money is used where it is most needed– which could mean hiring top-rate faculty, improving the menu in Marina or increasing scholarship funds. A gift of any size is a way to show your appreciation for the experience your student is having at UB. We on campus recognize that tuition alone can be a sacrifice but keep in mind that UB’s tuition is one of the lowest in the region and UB was recently named one of the top Universities nationwide for return on investment. This means that chances are your student will find a job soon after graduation or be accepted into a graduate program to further enhance their skills in their chosen field.

If you currently aren’t receiving news from campus, please update your contact information here. This is also where you can update your mailing preferences with the University. We hope that you’ll feel as much as part of the UB community as your student and we welcome your participation at events and look forward to seeing you on campus soon.

For more information on how you can support UB or how to get involved please contact Craig Lennon, Assistant Dean of Students at 203-576-4273 or clennon@bridgeport.edu.
