The Learning Corridor

Hartford, CT

The Learning Corridor Map

Background and Context
The key institutions of the Southside Institutions Neighborhood Alliance (SINA) have worked cooperatively with the community since the 1970’s to develop leadership and improve the economic, physical and social characteristics of three of Hartford’s neighborhoods by addressing education, housing, public safety and other aspects of the Southside neighborhood.

Within SINA, the institutions of Trinity College, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, Connecticut Public Television & Radio, Hartford Hospital, and The Institute of Living, were at the forefront of a planning effort that brought together community activists, educators, state and government officials, local businesses and non-profits in a collaboration that led to the development of The Learning Corridor.
