Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The University of Hartford welcomes diverse individuals no matter their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religion, or politics. This diversity forms and enhances our community – a community that we affirm in our values statement.
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.
Our guest speakers, scholars, performers, and activists help us to engage in critical conversations and further the University's goal of maintaining an inclusive campus environment.
UHart is committed and continually striving to be a campus on which every diverse individual is treated fairly and respectfully, has equal access to opportunities and resources, and is enabled and encouraged to contribute fully to campus life.

Diversity in our Curriculum

Office of 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.
