Construction Institute fate with UHart on hold

Construction Institute was spared severance – at least momentarily – from the University of Hartford as the four-year college reorganized its offerings and was looking to cut ties with the trade group.

As UHart underwent its Strategic Prioritization Initiative to review its educational operations and missions, the university targeted possibly cutting ties with the Construction Institute, which offers programs, networking, and educational courses for its members from the construction industry.

On Friday, UHart announced the implementation of its initiative, including eliminating 19 positions at the university, among other belt-tightening.

However, UHart deferred its decision regarding the Construction Institute to allow its College of Engineering Technology and Architecture a chance to explore collaboration with the Construction Institute, to see what benefits there would be for students.
