Connecticut College was founded more than a century ago to expand access to higher education. Today, the College’s strategic plan—Building on Strength—commits to “enhance resources to enroll and retain students from historically underrepresented groups,” an indication that our foundational values remain firmly in place. This action plan prioritizes an equity-minded focus on increasing student access and opportunity to ensure that our student population reflects the demographics of the broader society for the next 100 years and beyond.
