Assistantship: Center for Students with Disabilities

Bio: My name is Patrick Rogers and I grew up in Middleboro, Massachusetts. I pursued my undergraduate degree in Social Work at Providence College. I spent my Social Work Field Experience working as a case manager for the Outreach team through The House of Hope CDC, a homelessness provision agency that serves people throughout Rhode Island. I’ll be spending my summer working as the Program Coordinator for the summer bridge program “Passport” at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA before moving to Connecticut. My assistantship site is with the Center for Students with Disabilities.

I really enjoyed my time at Providence College believe that my time spent working for programs and becoming involved in organizations on campus helped me determine my interest in Student Affairs. I was inspired by the work of staff and administrators at PC as well as the relationships I was able to build with underclassmen through my involvement with the summer bridge program the summers before my junior and senior years. During that time I served as a Mentor and Resident Assistant for two cohorts of new students, my year serving on the Executive Board of Providence College’s Student Congress and working closely with the Dean of Students Office, as well as two years of serving on the New Student Orientation Staff as an Orientation Coordinator and Orientation Leader at PC. It was during these experiences and through the relationships, I was able to build that I realized I wanted to have the same jobs as the administrators and staff with whom I was working. I’m beyond grateful and excited to be student in the HESA program at UConn to prepare me for this amazing field!
