Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

While the University has a predominately white student body, diversity is not lacking. University of Hartford students come from very different ethnic, economic, religious, and regional backgrounds. The University is home to a variety of students—white, black, Hispanic, Asian, Middle Eastern, Jewish, Catholic, Christian, Muslim, and Hindu. There is also diversity in terms of sexual orientation, and you will find straight, gay, lesbian, and transgendered students here.

Even if two students have something in common, like ethnicity or religious belief, they still have different backgrounds or lifestyles. The students here represent many different states and countries around the world, and the International Center is dedicated to helping and offering support to international students, as well as anyone who wants to study abroad. The diversity of the student population is one of the best things at the University, and it is projected to increase over the years.
