Key to UB Student Handbook

2020-2021

Greeting from the Division of Student Affairs

Craig LennonWe would like to extend a warm University of Bridgeport (UB) welcome to those of you who are the newest members of our community and a welcome back to our students returning for continued studies at UB.

The Key to UB is our student handbook. The handbook is intended to acquaint you with the University to better understand our philosophy, goals, policies and procedures. It is an important reference book for students, faculty, staff, and administrators.

We hope that this academic year will prove to be a productive learning experience for you conducive to intellectual discovery and personal growth and development. The University of Bridgeport is a very special place, and our diversity is a big part of what makes us special. Enjoy and respect it. Realize, too, that with our diversity comes the potential for misunderstanding, and that the way we interpret information, respond to situations, and view life’s challenges may be very different for each of us. Outside of the United Nations, there are few institutions that are fortunate to have this diversity. We are privileged!

If you have any questions regarding the University of Bridgeport, student life, its policies and/or procedures, please feel free to contact the Dean of Students Office in the Student Center, Room 116, at any time. We can also be reached at (203) 576-4392, or by email deanofstudents@bridgeport.edu.

We wish you all the best for a successful and exciting year.

Best regards,

Craig Lennon
Dean of Students
