The University of Hartford was born of partnerships, has a long tradition of partnering, and continues to cultivate and participate in vibrant and fully integrated partnerships featuring a wide range of activities.
The University was created in 1957 from a partnership among three academic institutions (The Hartt School, the Hartford Art School, and Hillyer College), and several external partners in the Greater Hartford community. Since then, our partnerships have flourished at the regional, state, national, and international levels.
