The campaign for Hartwick students

People, Animals and Plants of Thailand

Location: Northern Thailand

Course: BIOL 242, offered every other year

The hills of Northern Thailand provide a home for many different ethnic peoples, who have for centuries lived in harmony with their environment. These unique cultures are currently threatened by globalization and problems of immigration, restricted land use, crop restrictions, lack of cash crops and productive forests, environmental degradation, water pollution, poor sanitation and food security. The objective of this course is for the students to be involved in a mutual relationship with the hill tribe villagers, in which we can learn from and help each other.

Prerequisite: none
Instructor: Professor of Biology Linda Swift
Length of program: 29 days

I am continually impressed and often touched by the quality of what takes place on Oyaron Hill. The practicality and the dedication that Hartwick College demonstrates in so many ways both enhances the lives of young people and benefits our society.
