The University of Hartford is on the move. Our campus continues to develop, and our reputation as a quality educational institution continues to grow dramatically. With 5,500 undergraduates and 1,700 graduate students, we are larger and more selective than at any time in our history. We take great pride in the rich diversity of our students, who come from major international cities like Shanghai and small American towns like Port Alexander, Alaska, to live and learn together.
Our academic programs are outstanding. Known for excellence in the performing and visual arts, engineering, communication, and business, we continue to push the intellectual envelope as we pursue an integrated approach to science, engineering, and technology education.
At the University of Hartford, we not only prepare students for successful careers; we prepare them for successful lives as citizens in a democracy.
Our story is that of a private university with a public purpose. In 1957 a group of visionary business and community leaders shared the belief that Hartford needed a university. So, they founded one. That spirit of dedication to our community has permeated our mission ever since.
I invite you to join us and see for yourself why the University of Hartford is such a wonderful place to be.
Walter Harrison, President
