The University of Hartford faculty senate is the primary faculty governing board and consists of faculty members from each college who serve as senators and represent their constituent faculty members.
The Office of the Provost, led by Provost H. Frederick Sweitzer, oversees all academic-related functions, including undergraduate and graduate programs, faculty, and libraries.
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness supports the individuals and groups who make policies and decisions affecting the University of Hartford by collecting institutional data and information, conducting policy analysis for campus assessment/evaluation activities, and facilitating planning efforts.
Operating under the office of the Provost, OSP serves as the initial point of contact for faculty and staff seeking external funding for their research. We are the lead office on campus for grant management, working closely with Financial Accounting Services, which oversees post-award financial reporting, and the department administrators in the schools.
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) at the University of Hartford is charged with the ethical review and oversight of research that involves human subjects.
As faculty, students reach out to you looking for additional ways to connect their majors to potential career pathways. The Career Studio promotes students becoming career ready through achieving specific career competencies. UHart has developed career competencies based on research from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and UHart’s educational learning outcomes.
There are several ways to support student engagement in career-informing opportunities.
Below are a few suggestions:
- Ask students to use Handshake to explore jobs, industries, organizations and events that align with their major, skills or interests.
- Encourage students to explore UHart Clubs, Organizations and Activities. Participation in and leadership of campus activities is one of the best ways for students to build and strengthen career competencies.
- Offer extra credit assignments with career exploration and preparation as the focus:
- Encourage the development of a LinkedIn profile.
- Require attendance at a campus event to reinforce networking and interpersonal skills.
- Encourage exploration of Career Studio programs and events.
