Making Hartford Our Campus

The Hartford Heritage Project makes Hartford’s diverse cultural institutions, landmarks, and neighborhoods an extension of our classroom.

Take part with benefits that come with your Capital ID, One Note and One Play performances, place-based courses including nursing modules in art and history, Hartford History Lectures, and the Liberal Arts Action Lab.

At Capital, we are proud to be an important part of Hartford and we are excited to share the history, culture, and artistic life of Connecticut’s capital city with our students through place-based courses and special programming with our partner organizations.

Learning comes alive with the Hartford Heritage Project!
