Hartwick faculty members are committed to enhancing the learning environment of the College through their work as teachers, scholars, advisors, and mentors. One of the defining characteristics of the College is its intimate educational environment, where learning derives from a partnership between motivated students and an excellent faculty. As an extension of the classroom, faculty work with students on collaborative research, artistic interpretation, social service and civic projects, internships, and learning opportunities abroad. Of 200 Hartwick faculty members, 120 are full-time and 95 percent hold the highest degree in their discipline.
A long-term pattern of creative, grassroots, self-sustained initiatives helps to define the intellectual ethos at Hartwick and characterize the commitment that faculty make to the education of their students. Innovative teaching and learning experiences have been consistently encouraged among and between faculty. The faculty tenure system recognizes teaching and learning, discovery, productivity, and engagement in its benchmarks, and provides both a conceptual and practical framework in which the “Liberal Arts in Practice” is supported.
