With Gratitude

The level of engagement with place-based learning at Capital would not be possible without the dedication of faculty, support from Capital's administration, Foundation, and agencies such as the National Endowment for the Humanities and CT Humanities, and the partnerships we have formed with arts and cultural institutions in Hartford who welcome us, and make these opportunities affordable and easily accessible. 

While the HHP Team represented here is big, there are many more staff, faculty, and community partners who make place-based education a vital component of life and learning at CT State Capital.
