Herencias Latinas

Connecting students, faculty and staff with Latino Culture in the Hartford area.



Herencias Latinas is a segment of the Hartford Heritage Project focused on Latino/a (Latinx) culture. The goal of this initiative is to collaborate with area organizations in order to develop educational opportunities for students, faculty and staff to understand and appreciate the diversity and complexity and history of the Latino population in the Hartford area.


In Spring 2023 the college officially launched Herencias Latinas, the segment focused on Latino culture. A series of programs followed, bringing to light the  many facets of Latino life in the Hartford area. Herencias Latinas at CT State Capital establishes new connections each semester. Partnering with area organizations and developing educational activities and initiatives, we're working to  understand and appreciate the diverse and complex history of Hartford's Latino population.
