Getting to Know Us

Let us share with you the UHart culture, learning, and energy that takes place on our campus every day. Whether it is bettering our local neighborhoods through our diverse community service projects, performing a seasonal favorite The Nutcracker, or welcoming students onto campus during the summer, every contribution we make is an opportunity to leave an impression on our greater community. The result is a welcoming and supportive atmosphere where anyone can find their place and everyone feels at home.

Harry Jack Gray Center Diversity Mural

Nevaeh McKinney ’23 and Lukas Struppe ’21 led the creation of the mural installed on the pillars of the Harry Jack Gray Center. Their goal was to illustrate the different types of beautiful people here on this campus. Thanks to a generous donation aimed at improving diversity and inclusion on campus, they gathered a group of students and artists to realize this goal, creating a stunning visual to celebrate the diversity and individuality of humanity. The design was led by creative director, artist, and student Evelyn Mtika ’22. 

Learning Opportunities

The Presidents' College is an informal community of people—living in the greater Hartford area—who come together for brief courses and stand-alone lectures on almost every imaginable topic, including history, literature, science, current events, the fine and performing arts, and much more.

Our instructors include both the most stimulating teacher-scholars on the University of Hartford faculty, and a host of experts from the broader community across a range of fields from business to politics to science, to music and the arts. Anyone can become a part of our community by simply registering for one or more of our events.

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.
