Parent Network

Welcome to the UHart Family!

As soon as your student chooses the University of Hartford, all parents and/or guardians instantly become a part of the Parent Network, playing a significant role in the student experience and at the University overall. We encourage you to engage with us and support students in meaningful ways—from attending events as a parent volunteer and connecting with prospective families to providing professional development and scholarship opportunities. You can create a unique way of being involved, ultimately enjoying a UHart experience of your very own!

As a member of the Parent Network, you will receive quarterly e-newsletters, and are invited to share your time and expertise. You will also have opportunities to connect with fellow parents. Parent support is a transformative part of our community and truly helps our students reach success. For this reason, we also invite you to consider philanthropic engagement, because every gift matters. Whether it is $25 or more, all contributions help enrich the UHart experience.

Check out the many ways you can stay connected below and join us in making your mark. Interested in getting involved? We want to hear from you.
