Sekou said he hoped the candidates would talk about their ideas for revitalizing urban areas in Connecticut and the rise in poverty nationwide.

The University of Hartford was included in an Oct. 4 story in the Hartford Business Journal about the performance of the endowment funds of the state’s colleges and universities. In the article, titled “College Endowments Recovering, Slowly,” it was noted that “Like UConn, the University of Hartford counts on endowment income for a small portion of its operating budget — less than 2 percent — so its losses haven’t had a major impact on the university.” To read the full article, click here.
