Chartered in 1911, Connecticut College was founded in the spirit of political and social equality, self-determination, and shared governance. The College actively seeks out students who are not only smart and intellectually curious, but who also bring a wide range of life experiences and perspectives that enable this spirit to endure within the College community. The College’s near century-old Honor Code defines campus life. Intellectually and academically, the Honor Code inspires students to challenge themselves and their peers to see the world from diverse perspectives, to remain receptive to new ideas and experiences, and, by instilling a sense of mutual respect, to consider how their actions and education may ultimately better the common good. The College offers 42 majors and participates in the NCAA Division III New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC). The College is nationally known for its career program, offering all students the opportunity for a College-funded summer internship. The College has been called a "college with a conscience," for its record of sending students to Teach for America and the Peace Corps. Enrollment at the College is approximately 1,900. In the past three years, 20 Connecticut College students have been awarded Fulbright Scholarships.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
