Over 150 faculty work within the University of Hartford Community Division, providing instruction in vocal and instrumental music, as well as dance. These faculty educate members of our communities, from youth to college-aged students. They serve as many young people’s first introduction to the University of Hartford campus community.
The University of Hartford Community Division voted in late 2016 to join the Congress of Connecticut Community Colleges and SEIU Faculty Forward, marking the first successful effort by adjuncts at a private university in Connecticut! Since then, they have won their first contract which included a modest salary increase, but it was the first increase some long-time members had ever received at the University.
