The Arts at Connecticut College

Katherine Bergeron, President of Connecticut College

Since our founding, the arts have played a seminal role in the educational mission of Connecticut College. We were the first baccalaureate institution in the country to offer music and art as fully fledged academic subjects. There is good reason for this. Visual art, creative writing, film, music, theater, and dance encourage us to see the world, and ourselves, in entirely new ways. They make us reflect more deeply, think more critically, listen more openly, and act more compassionately.

The College launched its first professional concert series in 1917 and never looked back. We look forward to inviting you back to experience the transformative power of art.
