Supporting Our Students

Meet Teddy
Teddy at alumni plaza

Teddy is UHart's comfort canine. This 2-year old companion is one of the many ways we come together to support our campus community. Join Teddy on D.o.G. to support UHart students. 

By making your gift on April 3, you are helping our students reach their goals. A gift of any size helps provide each student the opportunity to look forward on a career path, push their limits, and chase their dreams. Thank you for investing in tomorrow's leaders and influencers at the University of Hartford.

“I received scholarship money and now am able to pay it forward.”
