1981 REFLECTION - The birth of a national postseason competition for women’s athletics came from the passing of Title IX in 1972 and as 277 Division I institutions sponsored women’s sports entered the NCAA in 1981. It would be in that same year when, out of 95 participating Division I field hockey schools, the University of Connecticut would be selected to host the first-ever NCAA Division I Field Hockey Championship at Memorial Stadium on November 21 & 22, 1981 in Storrs, Connecticut. During that historical year in women’s college sports, under new national governance, seventh-year head coach Diane Wright would guide her Connecticut team to a 15-2-3 overall record and a berth in the home-hosted contest. The underdog UConn upset top-seeded and top-ranked Massachusetts, 4-1, in the championship final to seal the title for the Huskies. They became the first-ever NCAA Champion in the sport, the school’s first-ever NCAA National Championship team (men’s or women’s) and the first-ever college women’s team to be crowned as NCAA Division I Champions. UConn standouts Laurie Decker, Lynn Kotler, Lorie McCollum and Rose Smith were named to the NCAA All-Tournament Team, while Decker and McCollum became Connecticut field hockey’s first All-American selections. Since the 1981 National Championship season, Connecticut has qualified for 21 of the 29 national postseason tournaments held, with nine appearances in the NCAA National Semifinals.

University of Connecticut field hockey coach Nancy Stevens and the word success are synonymous. Entering her 23rd season at Connecticut and her 34th overall as a head coach, Stevens has firmly secured the tradition of UConn field hockey among the nation’s best. Recognized as one of the top collegiate field hockey coaches in the nation, she has compiled an impressive 535-168-24 record for a .752 winning percentage over her previous 33 seasons. Overall, she ranks second among active Division I coaches in overall wins (535) and ranks first in games coached (727) - entering 2012. Stevens has guided the Huskies to the NCAA Tournament in 15 of the last 16 seasons overall and during that span, Connecticut has earned 11 NCAA quarterfinal berths and advanced to the NCAA National Semifinals five times. The Huskies are currently enjoying a streak of 10 straight NCAA berths, dating back to 2002. Stevens became the second coach all-time to win 500 games when the Huskies defeated No. 5 Syracuse, 2-1, to win the 2009 BIG EAST Tournament Championship. Stevens is one of a select group of U.S. collegiate coaches to attend an International Hockey Federation (FIH) High Performance Coaching Course. The 25 coaches in attendance included top European club coaches as well as coaches preparing their teams for the Olympic Games. From this course, she received a further recommendation to attend an FIH Final Coaching Development Course. Stevens has taken two Division I programs to a No. 1 ranking (Connecticut in 1999 and Northwestern in 1985). Her record at UConn over 20 years stands at 354-118-8 (.747). Under Stevens, the Huskies have qualified for the BIG EAST Tournament in 21 of her 22 seasons, with a league record 11 different squads (2009, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2002, 2000, 1999, 1998, 1996 and 1992) winning the conference tournament title. The 2011 season was the 16th UConn squad under Stevens that earned a berth to the NCAA Division I Championship, as her 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2000, 1999, 1998, 1997, 1996 and 1990 teams qualified as well. The 2011 campaign also marked UConn’s third NCAA National Semifinal berth in the last six seasons and the program’s fifth overall under Stevens. Since beginning BIG EAST play in 1989, the UConn field hockey team has captured 11 of the 23 BIG EAST Tournament titles, including three in a row from 1998-2000 and four straight from 2004-07. The Huskies have advanced to the conference championship game 18 times. In addition, the Huskies earned 12 of the last 15 regular season titles, including a stretch of five in a row from 1996-2000 and four consecutive crowns from 2002-2005. A seven-time BIG EAST Coach of the Year, Stevens is also a six-time National Field Hockey Coaches Association Mideast Coach of the Year (1996, 1998, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2011). The UConn field hockey program has been ranked among the nation’s elite consistently throughout Stevens’ career. In 1999, the Huskies sat atop the national poll for five consecutive weeks. After opening the year No. 6 in the nation, UConn defeated then top-ranked Penn State to take over at No. 1. Connecticut remained undefeated through the end of the regular season, before losing to eventual national finalist Michigan.

HERR

Entering her 12th season with the UConn field hockey coaching staff, Cheri Herr works primarily with the goaltenders. During the 2004 season, Herr[apos]s expertise proved to be a key factor at UConn. The team allowed just 0.57 goals per game to its opponents, which ranked first nationally and helped earn goalkeeper, Melissa Bostwick, secondteam All-America honors. The Huskies have consistently ranked among the nation[apos]s leaders in fewest goals allowed during her tenure. More recently, current Husky goalkeeper Sarah Mansfield was honored as a First Team All-American and named to the 2011 All-NCAA Tournament Team. Mansfield was also selected as the BIG EAST Goalkeeper of the Year in 2010. “Cheri brings a wealth of goalkeeping experience to our program,” UConn head coach Nancy Stevens said. “She has developed two All-America goalkeepers during her five years on the coaching staff. Cheri is a tireless worker who always puts the needs of the team first. We are very fortunate to have her in our program.” Herr came to UConn from Providence College, where she served as an assistant coach for two years under head coach Bill Davidson. The Friars made the BIG EAST Field Hockey Tournament, eventually losing to UConn in the championship game in 2000. Prior to her stint at Providence, Herr was an assistant field hockey coach at Fairfield University during the 1998 season, when they captured their first-ever Patriot League title. She also served as a graduate assistant at Syracuse, her alma mater, from 1996-1998. While at Syracuse, Herr was a four-year starter in goal for the Orangewomen. During her career, Syracuse went a combined 54-23-6, won two BIG EAST Championships and made two NCAA appearances under the direction of head coach Kathleen Parker. Herr, a member of the BIG EAST All-Conference Team in 1993 and 1995 and an All-America selection in 1995, is Syracuse’s current record holder for career saves, save percentage, goals against average, single game saves and shutouts at Syracuse. She was named the MVP of the 1995 BIG EAST Tournament. Herr is a native of New Holland, Pa. She graduated from Syracuse in 1996 with a bachelor degree in Physical Education. Herr is also involved in the USFHA Futures Program. She has served as a coach in the program since 1996 and was named Site Director of New York State Central Region in 1998. In October 2004, Herr was inducted into the Hall of Fame at her alma mater, Garden Spot (Pa.) High School.

Caddy resides in Glastonbury, Conn., with his wife Katherine and daughter Isabelle, born February 15, 2010.

“During the recruiting process, we work hard to identify players who have a passion for the game. Our role as coaches is to create a supportive environment and give our players the freedom to reach their full potential. We encourage unselfish play. When you give up the ball to a teammate, you will always get it back. Putting the team first is the surest path to a championship.” - Nancy Stevens, Head Coach “Every field hockey player will comment on how fulfilling and rewarding of an experience it was to play for their particular college. They­­­­ will say how the lessons learned, the friends made, and the memories shared will stay with them forever. The same is true at UConn, but what separates UConn from other programs is the staff, who somehow manage a fun and nurturing, yet get-down-to-business attitude. Nancy Stevens’ unrelenting competitive edge inspired me to believe that my hard work will accomplish amazing feats both on and off the field. “ Two-Time All-American Katie Stephens (‘01)

“Walking out to the game field wearing the UConn colors is only one of the proud memories I have of being a Husky. In high school, this was what I dreamed about, taking my play to the next level and becoming a part of a union where everyone has the same dream- to become a champion. Not only did we become champions, but we survived the ups and downs of working our hardest and making sacrifices together. Playing for Nancy Stevens and for UConn taught me many lessons in leadership, friendship, trust and dedication.”

“Looking back upon my career at UConn brings a smile to my face and warmth to my heart. They were the most memorable years of my life, where I learned the most important lessons of life, including the value of friendship and family. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunities I had at UConn, both on and off the playing field. I will never forget how proud I was to put on a Husky uniform and represent the University of Connecticut. We valued not only our performance, but our relationships as well.” Three-Time All-American Laura Klein (‘01)

“Playing field hockey for UConn is an experience I will always treasure. Of course the memories and friendships will stay with me forever and so will the lessons learned from all the dedication and hard work. But what stands out the most in my mind as I look back on the past four years is that playing field hockey at UConn was fun. Practice was the time of day I looked forward to and putting on that Husky uniform for game time was a true honor. It is a tribute to Nancy Stevens and her staff and also to my teammates that we were able to play in an elite program and at such a high level while still being able to enjoy the moment. I will always be thankful for that.” All-American Meagan Hoffmann (‘06)

“Playing field hockey for one of the top athletic and academic institutions in the nation is something I will always be grateful for. It was one big adrenaline rush. All of the hard work and determination that my coaching staff and teammates possessed showed through until our very last moment together on the field. Thinking back about all of the old memories- the success and the adversity- I would not change a thing.” Two-Time All-American Rose Aspelin (‘96)

“Reflecting back on my time at Connecticut makes me realize how special those four years really were. Through field hockey, I have gained so many precious memories and experiences that I will forever carry in my heart and mind. Many people that I have met there are now my closest friends and an extended part of my family. My years as a collegiate athlete are exactly as I dreamed they would be and I wouldn’t give them up for the world.” Three-Time All-American Amy Herz (‘01)

Kiplinger’s Personal Finance ranks UConn in the top 30 for best value in public colleges. Whether students’ long-range goals are preparing for a career, pursuing a graduate degree, or attending medical or law school, “students can receive a stellar education without graduating with a mountain of debt,” Kiplinger’s noted. UConn has a variety of programs to help many students financially, ranging from merit scholarship opportunities to need-based financial aid packages, all designed to support a large number of qualified students. The University also has many part-time campus jobs with flexible hours that help students earn extra spending money or build their résumé with hands-on work experience.

With our main campus in Storrs, we’re a major academic institution that values its small-town roots. Students enjoy the familiarity of an intimate academic institution, while being just a short drive from major cities.

Storrs Center From Dreams to Reality

W

hen the Town of Mansfield and the University of Connecticut formed the Mansfield Downtown Partnership, Inc. over a decade ago, it was perhaps difficult to imagine a vibrant, walkable downtown in the heart of the Mansfield. But now, steps away from the Town Hall, Mansfield Community Center, E. O. Smith High School, and UConn’s School of Fine Arts, the beginnings of Storrs Center provide a tangible preview of good things to come in this college town! Construction began on the first phase of Storrs Center with a ceremonial groundbreaking on June 29, 2011. Governor Dannel P. Malloy, Mansfield Mayor Betsy Paterson, and UConn President Susan Herbst were on-hand to celebrate the culmination of many years of planning and the beginning of a new chapter in the Town-Gown relationship. Less than a year later, the first businesses opened the doors of their new homes: Storrs Automotive (11 Dog Lane) and Select Physical Therapy (9 Dog Lane, Suite 108) opened in Storrs Center in April. The first phase of Storrs Center (Phase 1A) consists of 1 Dog Lane and 9 Dog Lane, which feature commercial uses on the first floors and rental apartments on the upper floors; the new Storrs Automotive in 11 Dog Lane; and a new parking garage. The rental apartments, The Oaks on the Square, were fully leased by the end of April 2012 and will open in mid-August 2012. Businesses have lined up quickly for the new downtown. In 1 Dog Lane, visitors will find Dog Lane Café (from the owners of the Vanilla Bean

Café in Pomfret and 85 Main in Putnam), Froyoworld, Insomnia Cookies, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Mooyah Burger & Fries and Subway. Nine Dog Lane will be the home of Bank of America, Body Language, Geno’s (a new restaurant from UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma), Head Husky, Husky Pizza, Select Physical Therapy, Sweet Emotions Candy and Travel Planners. These businesses will all begin to open in mid-August. Meanwhile, the next phase is already under construction. Phase 1B includes another mixed-use building, featuring commercial spaces and additional apartments from The Oaks on the Square, and the intermodal transportation center. Both of these buildings are being constructed adjacent to the parking garage, which will open to the public in mid-August 2012. The Oaks on the Square will begin accepting applications for the apartments in September, but information is available now on their website: www.theoaksonthesquare.com. The commercial spaces for Phase 1B are filling up as quickly as those in the first phase did. The UConn Co-op will open a new satellite location facing the Town Square while maintaining its existing location across the street from Gampel Pavillion. The UConn Co-op @ Storrs Center will feature general books, a children’s section, a café and much more. Negotiations for the remaining spaces are on-going; look for leases announcements on the Storrs Center website: www.storrscenter.com. With market-rate housing, the town square, and a variety of businesses to appeal to all ages within walking distance of UConn and key civic uses, Storrs Center will be the community hub that Mansfield has long awaited. For more information, please visit www. storrscenter.com or contact the Mansfield Downtown Partnership at 860-429-2740 or mdp@mansfieldct.org. A list of Frequently Asked Questions is available on the Partnership’s website, www.mansfieldct.org/mdp.

In addition to all that the city of Hartford and the state of Connecticut has to offer, the region within two hours of Storrs is ripe with cultural and entertainment possibilities. SPRINGFIELD (47 miles) The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is located less than an hour from Storrs in Springfield, Mass., just minutes from the YMCA where Dr. James Naismith invented the game in 1891. A must-see for any fan of the hardwood, the Hall of Fame reopened in the fall of 2002 in a brand new $45 million home just off of Interstate 91 in Springfield. The pinnacle of any basketball career, the hall’s long list of inductees now includes UConn men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun, a 2005 inductee, and women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma, a 2006 inductee. Once you finish your tour of the Hall of Fame, Springfield’s neighboring suburb of Agawam is the home of Six Flags New England, the region’s largest amusement park.

NEW YORK CITY (142 miles) The United States’ largest city and “the media capital of the world,” New York City is located approximately two hours from Storrs and offers a wide array of cultural opportunities. From the glitter of Times Square, to the vast expanse of Central Park, to the majestic skyline, New York City is an incomparable destination and one that can be easily reached by the Metro-North train lines that run into southern Connecticut. UConn students also enjoy the city’s active sporting landscape. The BIG EAST Conference men’s basketball tournament, played every March at fabled Madison Square Garden, is one of the country’s premier collegiate conference championship events. The New York metro area also boasts 10 major professional sports franchises, including the NFL’s New York Jets and Giants, Major League Baseball’s New York Mets and Yankees, the NBA’s New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, the NHL’s New York Islanders, New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils and the WNBA’s New York Liberty.

BOSTON (86 miles) The birthplace of the American Revolution, Boston’s historic Freedom Trail is a living history textbook, covering everything from the Battle of Bunker Hill to the midnight ride of Paul Revere. Meanwhile, the city blends its old world charm with a cosmopolitan new world attitude that is evidenced by some of the trendier shops and restaurants that line both historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace and the Back Bay’s Newbury Street. One of the world’s foremost centers of education, Boston is home to over 50 colleges and universities; perhaps the entire world’s most concentrated collection of colleges. The greater Boston area also includes the summer beach resorts on Cape Cod and the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. A hub of sporting activity, the 2004 and 2007 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox have called fabled Fenway Park home since 1912. The 2008 NBA Champion Boston Celtics and the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions Boston Bruins also call Beantown home, while the 2002, 2004 and 2005 Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots and MLS’ New England Revolution play outside of the city in Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium.

arde J. Manuel, who has had a distinguished career in intercollegiate athletics that ranges from being a student-athlete to a director of athletics, became the Director of Athletics in March. Manuel, a 1990 graduate of the University of Michigan where he played both football and track and field, has most recently been the Director of Athletics at the University at Buffalo for the past six years. Manuel led a 20-sport program at Buffalo, an institution that is a member of the prestigious American Association of Universities. Buffalo enjoyed an unparalleled period of success during his time there from an athletic, academic and community service perspective. “I am so honored and excited to come to the University of Connecticut,” said Manuel. “UConn is synonymous with greatness, excellence and achievement. It is without a doubt one of the legendary schools that is at the pinnacle of intercollegiate athletics. The opportunity to be the athletics director at UConn and lead this extraordinary division is the role of a lifetime. You have remarkable coaches, great leadership, outstanding student-athletes and a wonderful base of fans, alumni and supporters. Our focus will be on academic success, compliance, ensuring great relationships with our fans, friends and supporters and, without a doubt, victory on the field and the court. My family and I are so happy to call UConn home.” From an academic standpoint, teams at Buffalo enjoyed incredible academic success. When Manuel arrived at UB, there were four programs - football, men’s basketball, wrestling, and baseball - that fell far below the NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) cut score of 925. With a focused academic plan, all four teams posted a four-year APR rate above the cut score and at the end of 2009-10, 10 of UB’s 20 sports had scores of 975 or above. Buffalo enjoyed great on-field success during Manuel’s time as the football team participated in the 2009 International Bowl and the men’s basketball team made postseason appearances in three of the past seven years. Olympic sports also thrived under Manuel’s leadership with accomplishments such as threestraight Dad Vail Regatta titles by the rowing team, six wrestlers earning spots at the 2011 NCAA Championship and the women’s tennis team making an appearance in the 2008 NCAA tournament. The sports of baseball and softball won a record number of games during his tenure and student-athletes earned All-American and all-conference honors at record rates. Under Manuel’s direction, UB student-athletes, coaches and staff are committed to community outreach and developed a comprehensive outreach program that reached across social and economic borders. UB student-athletes, coaches and administrators conduct over 2,500 community service hours in the Western New York community on an annual basis. UB’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) also coordinates 16 community service projects per year including internal campus related projects and external community

projects. Each of Buffalo’s 20 athletic teams also conduct at least one community service project per year. Manuel was honored by Sports Business Journal as a 2008 national 40-Under-40 honoree after receiving the same honor from Business First of Buffalo in Fall of 2007. Manuel has served on a number of national and conference committees and boards. In September of 2011, he was one of only three Athletic Directors asked to serve on the Collegiate Model Rules committee, a working group of the Division I Committee on Academic Performance, charged with broad overview of the current NCAA Rules Manual. He also currently serves on the NCAA Division I Championships/Sports Management Cabinet and served for four years as a member of the NCAA’s Academic Cabinet. During that time he was selected as Chair of the NCAA Academic Eligibility & Compliance Transfer Ad Hoc Committee. He is a member of the Boards of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and the D1A Athletic Directors Association. He also serves as a member of the Council of Presidents Budget & Finance Committee and served for three years as the Chair of the Mid-American Conference Director of Athletics Finance Committee. In June of 2007, Manuel accepted the Opportunity Award by all-time tennis great Billie Jean King, as Buffalo was recognized by the Women’s Sports Foundation as one of four “standout” colleges and universities in the nation for outstanding achievement in providing equitable athletic opportunities for its female student-athletes. Prior to his time at Buffalo, he was the assistant and associate director of athletics for the University of Michigan, where he oversaw that school’s football and men’s basketball programs. In February 1998, he was named an assistant athletic director at Michigan with responsibilities for overseeing operational facets of the university’s athletic program. He was named an associate athletic director in September 2000. Born May 22, 1968, Manuel is a native of New Orleans, who was a high school All-American football player and played for the University of Michigan under its legendary coach, Bo Schembechler. Manuel earned multiple letters and started at defensive end in his sophomore year. His football career was cut short by a neck injury and he subsequently earned two letters on the Wolverines’ track and field team. After graduating from Michigan, Manuel was coordinator of the university’s Wade H. McCree, Jr., Incentive Scholars Program from June 1990 to August 1993. The program is a partnership with The President’s Council of State Universities and Detroit Public Schools that helps students prepare for higher education at public universities in Michigan. He subsequently worked briefly as an academic advisor with the Georgia Tech Athletic Association before being named assistant athletic director of academic affairs. In the course of working on a PhD in social work and psychology at Michigan, he earned a master’s degree in social work in 1993 and an MBA from Michigan’s Ross School of Business in April 2005. Manuel and his wife, Chrislan, have a daughter, Emma (17), and a son, Evan (13).

J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage

Sports Museum T

he sights and sounds of more than a century of intercollegiate athletics competition come alive during a visit to the J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum. Located in the UConn Alumni Center in the heart of the University of Connecticut’s main campus in Storrs, the Husky Heritage Sports Museum is the ultimate library documenting the wide-ranging successes of Connecticut’s athletic programs. The state-of-the-art design and layout of the 2,700 square foot Husky Heritage Sports Museum, named after benefactor and 1940 Connecticut basketball and football captain J. Robert (Bob) Donnelly (shown above with wife M.J.), vividly captures all of the energy, excitement and enthusiasm that is associated with “Huskymania”. Donnelly passed away on Sept. 26, 2005. The visitors’ UConn experience begins with the University of Connecticut “National Champions” Gallery. This unique museum addition, located in the entrance foyer of the Husky Heritage Sports Museum, was unveiled in December of 2004 and will serve as a permanent tribute to all University of Connecticut varsity teams that climbed to the mountaintop and earned the right to be called National Champions. Currently, a total of 14 national champion squads, representing four different UConn sports, have team photos and national championship logos on display in the National Champions gallery. Included in the National Champions Gallery is the unbeaten 1948 men’s soccer team of Coach John Squires, the 1981 and 1985 UConn women’s field hockey teams of Coach Diane Wright, the 1981 men’s soccer team of Coach Joe Morrone, the 2000 men’s soccer team of Coach Ray Reid, the six national championship women’s basketball teams of Coach Geno Auriemma (1995, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2009), and the 1999, 2004 and 2011 UConn men’s basketball teams of Coach Jim Calhoun. Upon entering the Husky Heritage Sports Museum, visitors are greeted by a full figure statue of Jonathan, the legendary mascot of all Husky athletic teams. Oversized banners proudly hang from the ceiling, displaying action images that feature 88 of Connecticut’s All-American stars representing 17 different intercollegiate sports. A tour of the various sections of the Husky Heritage Sports Museum is a walk down memory lane for long-time followers of Connecticut athletics. For fans just becoming acquainted with UConn’s tradition of excellence, the various themes and areas of the museum, when woven together, narrate a complete and compelling sport-by-sport story line. The growth and development of Connecticut athletics is traced via text, photographs and select artifacts from its humble beginnings in the 1890s to its present day ranking among the elite major college athletic programs in the nation. Included among the “must see” memorabilia in the Husky Heritage Sports Museum main concourse are the 1981 and 2000 NCAA National Championship Men’s Soccer trophies; the 1981 and 1985 NCAA National Championship Women’s Field Hockey trophies; the 1950s era baseball gloves belonging to Connecticut’s three Dropo brothers-

including Walt Dropo’s first baseman’s mitt when he was the American League Rookie of the Year with the Boston Red Sox in 1950; the 1935 Ramnapping Trophy, awarded annually to the winner of the Connecticut-Rhode Island football game; a 1931 football signed by the entire Connecticut squad; team photos of Connecticut’s first men’s (1901) and women’s (1902) basketball squads; and the Waterford Crystal NCAA National Championship trophies won by UConn Women’s Basketball (1995, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2009, 2010) and UConn Men’s Basketball (1999, 2004, 2011). The pinnacle achievement of UConn’s nine NCAA National Championships in both men’s and women’s basketball is preserved and promoted in a unique circular sanctuary–the Connecticut Basketball Rotunda, a gift of Herb and Marcia Dunn. Championship trophies and related artifacts that chronicle UConn’s men’s and women’s national titles are prominently featured in the rotunda, as are life-size cutouts of Husky All-American stars Ray Allen and Rebecca Lobo. Celebratory paintings of head coaches Jim Calhoun and Geno Auriemma are on display along with a one-of-a-kind watercolor team photo of the 25-member UConn Men’s Basketball All-Century team. Also within the Husky Heritage Sports Museum experience is a video wall featuring a 65-inch high definition television. Visitors can view numerous historical moments in UConn history as captured on a variety of highlight films and documentaries. Each display case of memorabilia and every historical photograph located within the walls of the J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum describe a portion of a truly remarkable story. That story of the teams, the coaches, and student-athletes who have been part of the rich history that constitutes the University of Connecticut athletic experience is now being told on a daily basis at UConn’s Husky Heritage Sports Museum. In addition, there is a display on the history of football at UConn – from its starts in 1897, to its time in Division I-AA and now as a team that has played in a Bowl Championship Series game. The J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum is open free of charge to the general public during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) of the UConn Alumni Center. Since the Husky Heritage Sports Museum opened in January of 2002, several important artifacts have been donated from UConn loyalists to help expand the scope of the Connecticut Athletics storyline. The University of Connecticut Division of Athletics continues to seek additional memorabilia/artifacts to help expand the story of the UConn Huskies. Anyone wishing to donate specific Connecticut Athletics items to the J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum should contact: Tim Tolokan, Phone: (860) 486-1500, e-mail: tim.tolokan@uconn.edu.
