On behalf of the Connecticut Yankee Council, I would like to welcome you to the University of Scouting, an OUTSTANDING DAY OF TRAINING FOR ADULTS LEADERS AS WELL AS VENTURERS AND EXPLORERS. Our faculty and staff have put together an amazing program again this year, with a wide range of useful courses to choose from. I know you will find some great nuggets of knowledge and skill to take back and enhance your program, and probably definitely make some new Scouting friends.


Please take the time to browse the course offerings from every college. While the courses are listed by college, everyone is free to take courses from any college.  We’ve tried to make this catalog easy to read and understand, and more handy when planning your time with us.


As chair of this great event, I know that our Deans have worked tirelessly to select excellent course content, refine the schedules and recruit the best instructors possible. Our instructors are passionate about Scouting and about improving the program for our youth, and it will show in the way they deliver the program. Our administrative staff has worked for months making sure those things we all take for granted are working for us when we arrive.


This year marks the fourth time that Connecticut Yankee Council is offering the University of Scouting, and I promise that we will do our best to make this a memorable experience (the GOOD kind of memorable). For those many Leaders who attended the UoS in past years, we heard your feedback. We have continued to make changes, added courses, and improved our processes. And we hope you notice our improvements. University of Scouting is for EVERYONE; our classes in the Cub Scout College, Boy Scout College, Venturing & Exploring College, and College of General Studies are superb. And we haven’t forgotten our Commissioners. The College of Commissioner Science is also presenting a wide range of excellent courses. The College of Commissioner Science follows the guidelines from the BSA National Council and is offering Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctorate degrees in Commissioner Science.


If you have ANY questions, please contact me or any member of the staff
