Join us July 12-14, 2021 for the 43rd Virtual Confratute at UConn


**Important Update on Confratute 2021**

To our Confratute Family,

Best wishes to you from the Renzulli Center! As we all continue to cope with Covid-19 and the many changes we are experiencing in our work and home lives, we write to communicate with you directly about our plans for Confratute, 2021.

After discussions and consideration of our University's regulations about group gatherings and a survey we did with some of you, we have decided that we cannot host a live Confratute this summer as there is just too much uncertainty about the virus and vaccine distribution. The health and safety of all of you is our most important priority.

While we can never replicate our live Confraute, we have listened to many of you request an on-line summer program and so we will host one. We will keep you informed about this on-line conference which will be provided in a flexible, and we hope, creative format during the week that would have hosted our live Confratute event, July 11-16th.

In the meantime, we send our very best wishes, our prayers for safety and good health. It is our hope that by the Summer of 2022 we will host a live Confratute again and have the opportunity to see each other in person again. In the meantime, please consider spending some time with us virtually this summer for our Confratute event. We will be in touch about our plans during the next month.


Thank you and stay healthy!
