What We Do
The Hartford Consortium for Higher Education offers programs for youth and adults in the region, as well as for students, faculty and staff among our member schools. As a partner with the MetroHartford Alliance, we collaborate with corporate and state employers to help strengthen our region’s workforce.
C-R expands a student’s college experience by opening courses across a spectrum of learning to students and employees from all Consortium member schools. Undergraduates may enroll in up to four courses per academic year, and graduate students in 3, at one or more host schools in the Consortium. Learn More
A college access program, established in 1986, CB is geared towards increasing the percentage of first-generation college applicants who graduate from high school and go directly on to college and fulfilling careers. CB provides workshops, one-on-one advising and mentoring to students in Hartford, Bloomfield and East Hartford public schools. Learn More
Awarded annually, the grants program joins faculty, staff and administrators from at least two member schools in collaborative projects that can take the form of lectures, course development, symposia, performances or any other endeavor that enriches the educational and cultural experiences of Consortium members.

Roundtable discussions bring together faculty and administrators, often with visiting experts, on issues of current interest to the region and higher education in general; examples from past years include paying for college and the role of religious study in education. Learn More
