Endowing The Hartford Heritage Program

Endowment for program coordinator and web designer positions, course and faculty development, symposia, materials, and direct support for bridging expenses.

Capital Community College (Capital) proposes a focused program to strengthen its liberal arts curriculum with new humanities content anchored in the cultures and communities of Hartford. The project will establish an identity for the College as a center for Hartford-based humanistic exploration and instruction in Connecticut's historic and culturally diverse Capital City. A Hartford Heritage endowment fund will provide self-sustaining support for new Learning Communities that bring humanistic modes of inquiry to courses in the social sciences and other disciplines, create a Digital Humanities component that would underpin all Learning Communities and establish an annual Hartford Bridging Cultures Symposium. The College and its nonprofit foundation proposes a $300,000 NEH challenge grant as a catalyst to raise $600,000 in non-federal income through a challenge campaign.
