Each year, Hartwick chooses a campus theme. As part of the theme, we offer unique courses, bring in national and international experts, and organize special activities such as films and museum exhibitions.
The campus theme gives the entire Hartwick community the opportunity to work together to learn about a complex and significant topic.
Students put each year’s theme into practice through student organizations, community involvement, class projects, internships, and senior theses — often making links among themes from various years as they discover interconnections.
The Campus Theme of Innovation spans 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 academic years.
Past themes include:
- Fabric of Change
- Food and Community
- Health and the Environment: Personal Courage and Community Activism
- Tools for Life
- The Human Question
- Climate Change
