Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice (DEIJ)
The University of Hartford welcomes diverse individuals no matter their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, ability, religion, and/or politics. This diversity forms and enhances our community – a community that we affirm in our Mission and Vision statements.
The University is deeply committed to ongoing efforts to cultivate a welcoming campus climate that is inclusive, and an environment where students, faculty, and staff feel supported and safe.
In support of this commitment, numerous DEIJ workshops, trainings, and programs are provided to educate and inform UHart students, faculty, and staff and celebrate the identities of the greater community.

Diversity in our Curriculum
As part of UHart's nationally recognized interdisciplinary general education program, all students are required to take one diversity designated course.
Student Engagement and Inclusion
The Office of Student Engagement and Inclusion was introduced in 2019 to better align UHart resources with the diverse needs of students. Cultivating interconnected and inclusive communities that actively promote respect for all individuals and act intentionally with integrity results in more robust programming for students in collaboration with faculty and staff. It leverages decades of student-focused staff experience, with a goal of offering programs and services focused on creating co-curricular learning opportunities that enhance the personal, educational, leadership, cultural and social development for our students.
