Donor Named Endowments

The University of Hartford is a young university, and with your help, we can continue to enhance our campus and our programs. Endowments are created for various purposes and at the same time, they establish a personal legacy.

Faculty Development
At the heart of any great university is its faculty, and nowhere is this more true than at the University of Hartford. This is a place where close student-faculty relationships are embedded in the culture; where faculty elect to come because teaching is their priority; and where students know they can turn to their professors to acquire a deeper level of understanding. Faculty funding enables us to retain and recruit outstanding teachers, support faculty research and scholarship, and fund participation in national and international symposia, fellowships, and sabbaticals—activities that enrich classroom teaching and strengthen scholarship.

Harrison Libraries
The world of information resources is changing and expanding at lightning speed. Securing the funding to keep pace is critical for the libraries at UHart. Harrison Libraries is a focal point for the university's academic life. Mortensen Library's extensive collection of books, print and electronic journal titles, and online resources makes it the pivotal resource for students and faculty. Mortensen also offers information and technology services, and special collections and rare books. Expanded offerings are provided by the Allen Music and Dance Library, with music, theatre, and performing arts resources.
