What's New

December 4, 2017
The achievements of more than 200 students were celebrated at the University of Hartford's Fall Commencement ceremonies on Sunday. Those who received associate, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees this past September, or who are scheduled to next month, donned cap and gown in two separate ceremonies.

Over the last week, our community has engaged in thoughtful and emotional meetings and conversations focusing and reflecting upon the recent events on campus. These conversations have been productive and provocative, and I will ensure that there will continue to be informal and formal opportunities for shared discourse as an impetus for meaningful change. A number of suggestions for action have emerged from these many discussions. What is clear to me is that each person and unit on campus has a part to play in moving forward. Here is a partial list of activities that have risen to the top of what will soon become a complete action plan for our campus around issues of equity, inclusion, and diversity.

I would like to provide an update on action steps being taken on campus in response to one of our students being the victim of disgraceful acts by another student. As I have previously shared, the individual responsible is no longer a student at the University of Hartford, has been arrested by the West Hartford Police Department, and the case will proceed through the legal process. While the University is limited in our ability to legally answer many of the questions raised, we are working diligently to provide details and action steps surrounding this situation.

I am writing this morning to provide further updates on the deeply disturbing situation involving our students. As of this morning, Brianna Brochu is no longer a student at the University of Hartford. She will not be returning to the institution.

I am writing to you this evening to send a strong message regarding an incident that is deeply upsetting to me, our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. One of our students was the alleged victim of bullying and her story was shared across social media. Let me be clear: the accused student’s behavior was reprehensible and does not reflect the values of our institution. Let me also be clear that I am confident the University has taken all steps to pursue this matter seriously, and will continue to do so.
