In today's UCONN Today, the STAAR Program is featured.
S.T.A.A.R. is a transitional program for students ages 18 to 21 that is designed to help young adults living with developmental disabilities continue their learning, develop vocational and independent living skills, and enhance their social relationships in a college-based setting.

The program began with one student in 2005 and now includes an average of 20 students each year, all of whom have previously completed four years of high school either at E.O. Smith High School in Storrs or at a high school from another area town. S.T.A.A.R.’s integration with the University’s campus – and with UConn students – is part of the program’s appeal for prospective students and their families.
