The Emeriti Association of the University of Hartford is comprised of retired faculty and administrators who have been granted emeritus status by the Board of Regents and who continue to contribute to the university's vibrancy and growth.
Emeriti Association members have a relationship that spans over fifty years with the UHart. Along with the memory they carry, comes a commitment by our members to strive to keep the University financially healthy, interesting, knowledgeable, able to handle the intricacies of a challenging world, and dedication to the well-being of our students and the contexts in which we live. While many students will pass through their time here without a glance backward, others will treasure their association with us for a lifetime, assured that some of us are still here, upholding the standards of the University and its continuity. We had a fruitful relationship with many of our students: we remember them and they often remember us. We are a resource that can be available for student recruitment, contact with alumni, and development of community constituents.
Each year we provide scholarships for worthy UHart undergraduate students and encourage students to apply.
