Jolie Rocke Brown '89

The Hartt School Liaison

Jolie Rocke Brown '89"The University of Hartford and The Hartt School were crucial to my successes in life. Today, I remain in contact with many of my college professors, advisors, and peers. I even married my college sweetheart, Wayne Brown '86. Through the years, I have remained connected to the University, attending student and alumni functions, mentoring several Hartt students, utilizing student volunteers in my classroom, hiring Hartt students to perform, recommending the Hartt Community Division to young musicians, utilizing campus venues for events, and advising high school students to consider UHart. I am grateful for every opportunity afforded me through my experiences with UHart and look forward to doing whatever I can to help the UHart community thrive."
