The Center for Hartford Engagement and Research (CHER) works to strengthen and evaluate academic and co-curricular partnerships between Hartford’s diverse communities and students, staff, and faculty at Trinity College.

This repository will provide a lasting archive of community-engaged research products with two goals:

  1. To share findings with community partners and neighbors in Hartford.
  2. To allow Trinity students, staff, and faculty to learn from past research so that we value the previous contributions of our partners and neighbors in designing future projects.

Much of the research stored here was conducted by undergraduates during the course of a single semester. As you explore the collection, we invite you to consider the contributions and limitations of this past research. We welcome feedback at
