Kaitlin Heenehan

Kaitlin is the Honors Program STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Scholar Advisor. In this role, she serves as the supplementary advisor to students with the STEM Scholar scholarship designation as well as all Honors students with a STEM major or interest.

Her role is to connect students to opportunities (in and out of the classroom as well as within and beyond UConn) and support them in their growth and development as the next generation of innovators, researchers, entrepreneurs, and problem-solvers. She coordinates events, programs, courses, and opportunities to support students. She works closely with the Honors and Enrichment team, departments on campus, and partners beyond UConn to help students explore areas of interest including leadership and professional development, research, education abroad, internships, etc.

Kaitlin advises the STEM Scholar Executive Board, a leadership board for the STEM Scholar Community as well as Honors in STEM, a registered student organization open to all Honors students interested in STEM.

She meets individually in advising appointments with students who have questions about Honors requirements and opportunities, course registration, academic policies, STEM Scholarships, and more. She is also one of the primary contacts for students with questions about the Honors Thesis, particularly in STEM fields. If you have a question and aren’t sure who to ask, Kaitlin will either help you directly or connect you to the right resources.

She is committed to fostering an inclusive and supportive Honors community and is Husky Ally Safe Zone certified.
