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