The Western Connection Program

Opportunities for WCSU Students

The Western Connection Program works collaboratively with the WCSU community in providing internships and paid mentoring opportunities for WCSU students.

  • Health Education Majors help Western Connection Students develop wellness plans and help monitor their progress through a semester.
  • Social Work Majors work with individual students on social issues and help run a social skills group.
  • Each semester the Western Connection Program hires about 12 students to mentor students 3 hours per week, assisting students with classwork and helping to assimilate the students socially in the Western Connecticut State University community.
