Since the Hartford Scholars program (which provides half-tuition scholarships to Hartford residents who graduate from Hartford public high schools and qualify to enroll at the University) was launched in 1990, 300 Hartford Scholars have earned 384 associate’s and/or bachelor’s degrees at the University. More than 100 Hartford Scholars are currently enrolled.
David Albert, director of counseling and psychological services in the University’s Office of Student Affairs, was quoted in a story on parental involvement in a student’s psychological treatment in light of HIPAA privacy regulations that ran on the front page of the Hartford Courant on Sunday, Sept. 12. “A lot of parents struggle with the concept that we don’t have the right to talk to them about their child’s progress,” said Albert, who added that his office tries to get to know students well, to determine how much family involvement might be useful.
John Kniering, director of career services in the Office of Student Affairs, was quoted in an Associated Press story about how more freshman are visiting their college’s or university’s career services office to get a head-start on finding success in their job market. The University of Hartford has seen a 37 percent increase in freshman career counseling appointments since 2006, Kniering told the Associated Press. “College is expensive and difficult ... probably the largest single investment that our students will ever make. It seems natural that freshman year is not too early to start,” he said. To read the full story, click here.
