The mission of the Presidents’ College is to create an extended community dedicated to the importance of the life of the mind. By offering a wide range of activities, the Presidents’ College allows its participants to explore significant topics at a high intellectual level under the guidance of university-level faculty and distinguished guest instructors. The Presidents’ College extends the University of Hartford’s educational mission by engaging the adult population of the surrounding communities in the intellectual life of the campus, and to build significant connections between them and the University.
Note: The Presidents’ College is an outreach program of the Harrison Libraries. Any surpluses generated by the Presidents’ College flow directly to the Libraries to purchase library resources. Thus, the College directly strengthens the Libraries’ services to students and the public.
