The city skylineHartford is the capital city of the Constitution State with a population of 124,775 and is home to the nation’s oldest public art museum and the nation’s oldest public park. The metro area of the “Insurance Capital of the World” ranked second in the nation for per capita income activity in 2010. Nearly forty-percent of Hartford’s population is Hispanic or Latino, but this number drops drastically when the city’s suburbs are taken into account. In addition to being home to Buddhist, Pagan, Taoist, and Baha’i communities, the city boasts twelve interfaith organizations.

Hartford Seminary is a non-denominational Christian seminary at the forefront of Christian-Muslim relations. In many ways, the Seminary defines the interfaith infrastructure of the city through its training of leaders for work in a multi-religious context and its educational opportunities for members of the broader community. Of greater Hartford’s twelve interfaith initiatives, eight are campus-based with two of these housed at Hartford Seminary.
