The University of Hartford was chartered on Feb. 21, 1957. Three institutions with their own rich histories—Hartford Art School, Hillyer College, and Hartt College of Music—joined together to meet the needs of the local community. In the 50 years since, the University has grown into a global institution whose students and faculty are changing the world.
Visual Communication Design Students
Leave Their Mark on the University
A little more than a year ago, a small group of Hartford Art School seniors began quietly working together on a new project. Their mission: to create an official logo for the University of Hartford’s 50th anniversary. John Nordyke, associate professor of visual communication design at HAS, guided the students through the process. The logo will be used throughout 2007 to commemorate the University’s landmark anniversary.

Murray Tinkelman is a remarkable man. Although it’s been more than 50 years since he began his career as an illustrator and educator, time has done nothing to diminish his energy level or enthusiasm for his work and his students.
