The Urban Experience Program (UEP) provides opportunities for the university's diverse student population by preventing minor obstacles from becoming major setbacks to degree achievement. The services that UEP offers have been strategically chosen to develop UEP students into well trained career professionals.
All students are welcome to receive the benefits and services of our program. UEP members come from a variety of socio-economic, gender and cultural backgrounds. These students include those who have aged out of foster care (PALS), low-income underrepresented, first-generation, DACA, UH honors students and seniors entering the workforce after college.
As an international student, I enjoy and am proud to be a team member of the Urban Experience Program (UEP). I have the opportunity to work with diverse student groups and broaden my knowledge of student services. I love my role of helping students and I believe that UEP has equipped me with skills to further my career journey in the field of higher education.
With over eight-years of student learning and development experience, I have not encountered a student success approach like Urban Experience Program (UEP). UEP empowers students to develop a one-on-one relationship with the intention of creating an open and safe space to discuss academic, personal, financial, career, and civic engagement opportunities.
I joined UEP my sophomore year in 2013, and it has tremendously impacted my success here at U of H. As first-generation college student, I needed guidance navigating my college experience. As a result of joining UEP I have been a consecutive recipient of the Dean’s List award, and I am more engaged in campus life. UEP truly takes a holistic approach to ensuring student success!
