Faculty Positions

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 Hartwick 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.

An independent, residential liberal arts college enrolling approximately 1400 full-time undergraduates, Hartwick embraces the teacher-scholar model, with teaching excellence as the first priority, and seeks to recruit, retain and promote a diverse workforce.

Located in the scenic Susquehanna River valley in Oneonta, NY, near the northern foothills of the Catskill Mountains, the College features a Liberal Arts in Practice general education curriculum and aspires to “be the best at melding liberal arts education with experiential learning.”

Hartwick offers health benefits to domestic partners of employees, and prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation/preference and gender identity/expression. Hartwick is an Equal Opportunity Employer, committed to broadening “the understanding, awareness, and appreciation of diversity among all members of the Hartwick community.” Underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply. 

Hartwick College is committed to providing a safe and secure educational environment. Employment at Hartwick College is therefore contingent upon a successful background check on every new employee. Candidates to whom an offer of employment is made will be required to sign a Release of Information Form authorizing the College to conduct a thorough background check.
