About WCD

In today’s fast-paced work environment, skills that were once current become obsolete faster than ever. As Connecticut’s flagship university, UConn works with unemployed and underemployed Connecticut workers to enhance technical business skills such as lean processing, digital marketing, big data and more. Our interactive seminars help participants become more marketable and enhance career success. Scholarships are often available to increase seminar impact on Connecticut residents and organizations.
