Why support Hartford International University?

In a world full of divisions and conflicts, Hartford International University creates solutions. Our students are people of all faiths, driven by a calling. They are peacebuilders, ministers, and chaplains. Through our academic programs and renowned research, we prepare leaders to thrive in a religiously complex world.

Your contribution ensures that students, who come to Hartford from all over the world, can attend with no financial barrier to entry. Your contribution will promote research to build interreligious understanding; foster the next generation of interreligious peace builders; and provide professional education to chaplains, ministers, and other religious leaders.
