A Convening on Hartford as a College Town

  • University of Connecticut 10 Prospect Street Hartford, CT, 06103 United States (map)

As UConn moves into its new space in the heart of Hartford’s downtown redevelopment, we invite educational, community and commercial leaders to join us as we work to transform downtown Hartford into a vibrant center for learning, culture and recreation.

With eleven colleges in the Capital City region, how do we engage college students and faculty in all the city has to offer? How do we leverage UConn’s added presence to spur new programming and development? How best can Hartford’s commercial, cultural and educational leaders reach out to college communities? How can area colleges make it easier for students and faculty to take advantage of these growing opportunities?

We will actively engage stakeholders from multiple sectors – college and K-12 education, local government, arts and culture, sports and recreation, retail business and night-life – in creating practical initiatives that will make a real difference in our city.

The day will consist of targeted presentations, working sessions on identifying obstacles and solutions, and the planning of concrete activities to be implemented in the near future. Invitees will include Sector Leaders, students and parents as well as others with experience in leveraging college and community resources.

On-line registration, including Early Bird pricing, now available.
