Welcome to the van Rooy Center for Complexity and Conflict Analysis at the University of Hartford!
The Center was established in 2008 though a generous gift from University of Hartford regent Jean-Pierre van Rooy and his wife, Marie-Claire.
Our mission is to assist the University of Hartford and its faculty in advancing the understanding among its students of the fundamentals of the new science of complexity.
As founding director of the van Rooy Center, I invite you to explore the Center and its activities though these pages. We provide a brief introduction to complexity and why you should study complexity. We invite you to learn about our history and what we are doing to further the study of complexity at the University. Here you can learn about our interdisciplinary minor in complexity and why you should include it as part of your program of study at Hartford.
If you have any questions, want to learn more, or want to get involved with the Center please contact me, Jane Horvath, Ph.D.
