Partnership for Diversity

Hartwick Partnership for Diversity: an outreach function aligning the College with community, regional, and national organizations, foundations, governmental bodies, educational entities, and heritage and cultural associations that support the College's pluralism goals. One of the major contributions being made to the partnership is the College's support of the U.S. Pluralism Center. The Center is the home for the United States Colored Troops Institute, the Harriet Tubman Mentoring Project, the Abraham Lincoln and Freedom Journey Exhibit, and the privately owned Matthews Collection for the Preservation of Freedom Journey Classics. The USCTI is a national resource and central partner in efforts to document and publicize African American and Civil War history.

Other partners linking with us in this effort to share historical information include:

The Guide to African American Documentary Resources: Cornell University

Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition: Yale University

Exploring Maryland's Roots:  Anthony Johnson: Maryland Public Television
