The Presidents’ College is an informal, welcoming community of people from greater Hartford and (thanks to Zoom) much farther afield. We immerse ourselves in short courses and stand-alone lectures on a wide and wild range of topics, including history, literature, STEM, fine and performing arts and current events.  We partner with UHart’s seven colleges and myriad undergraduate departments to co-present courses on matters of the moment in the spheres of business, economics, politics, diversity/equity, and culture.

Our instructors are drawn from the finest of UHart faculty and outside experts, and they consistently enthuse about teaching the engaged Presidents’ College attendees.

Joining this community is simple: choose one or more from each semester’s bounty of courses; register; prepare for lift-off!

Opportunities for civic engagement, volunteerism, and service learning abound.

The Center for Community Service works with agencies throughout the Greater Hartford area to serve as a resource for students, alumni, faculty and staff.
