Along the Walk

the learning corridor
Hartford’s Learning Corridor, located across Broad Street from Trinity College, marked its 20th anniversary in 2020. Trinity was a key partner in developing the 16-acre complex, which houses four interdistrict public schools, including Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy. For more on the Learning Corridor, read an article that appeared in the Reporter Winter 2001 issue, and a more recent article by Jackie Mandyck, reflecting upon the success of the Learning Corridor.

One among many truly uplifting moments for me this semester was the enthusiastic response we received from our community to take part in planning Trinity College’s Bicentennial Celebration. More than 150 people volunteered or nominated someone to play a role in this effort. This outpouring was yet another sign of how proud we all are to be part of the Trinity community.
