Key to UB Student Handbook

2021-2022

Greetings from the President

Danielle WilkenWelcome to the University of Bridgeport's 2021-2022 academic year. This year marks a new beginning not only for those of you who are stepping onto campus for the first time, but for all of us.

It's even more poignant that we are starting this journey after one of the most challenging periods any of us have ever faced. The COVID-19 pandemic changed our world as we know it. And while it forced us to physically distance ourselves from each other, in many ways it brought this campus community even closer together.

Furthermore, University of Bridgeport joined Goodwin University and Paier College in May 2021 in a partnership that builds on the legacy of the Purple Knights and creates new opportunities for our students.

One thing that has not changed as we move forward is our dedication to providing you with career-oriented programs and flexible degree options that prepare you to succeed in life. I promise that at UB we will continue to offer an educational experience grounded in academic excellence, personal responsibility, and commitment to service.

No matter your degree program or area of study, we are here to support you every step of the way on your path to a successful career and an amazing future.

This will be a year of many firsts for all of us. As your new president, I hope you are as excited as I am to start.

Sincerely,

Danielle

Danielle Wilken Ed.D.
President, University of Bridgeport
