Student Faculty Research

At Hartwick, learning is a partnership between dedicated teachers and motivated students.

Collaborative student-faculty research is one way we emphasize the experiential approach to the liberal arts.

From your first week and throughout your career at Hartwick, you'll find faculty ready and willing to help, advise, encourage, share, and collaborate. We'll help you choose courses, shape your major, develop projects, and formulate your senior thesis. We'll help you to take ownership of your education. We'll give you opportunities to break new ground, to present your work at regional and national conferences, and at Hartwick's Student Scholar Showcase.

Hartwick students and faculty work together on a wide variety of projects, from scientific research to artistic interpretation to social service projects abroad. In fact, due to quality of student-faculty collaborative research, Hartwick awards a number of Freedman Prizes each year to support such projects.
