The University of Hartford was chartered on Feb. 21,1957, as a university for the Hartford community. It merged three existing schools, the Hartford Art School, the Hartt School of Music, and Hillyer College.

In the ensuing decades, the University has grown to seven schools and colleges and has moved from being a commuter school to a large residential campus that offers 84 undergraduate majors and more than 30 graduate degree programs.

It is fitting that an institution forged by the community should be an integral part of that community. The University has two public magnet schools on its campus — an elementary school, and a high school concentrating in science and engineering. The Center for Community Service gives students, faculty, staff, and alumni access to volunteer opportunities throughout Greater Hartford. The Center for Integrated Design, the Engineering Applications Center, the Center for Professional Development and the Upper Albany Micro Business Incubator program are just a few of the resources available to area businesses and industry.
