You Belong Here

At Hartwick, we believe our differences are our strength

We know the world is interconnected and that true wisdom comes from a first-hand understanding of all cultures, faiths, experiences—that’s why we’re committed to fostering an environment of thoughtful exchange on- and off-campus.

Creating a culture of belonging

Hartwick’s Office of Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging exists to contribute to the creation, influence, and sustainability of a community in which the dignity of all people is respected and affirmed through the promotion of dialogue and interaction between cultures. Here, we all contribute to creating an environment that’s safe, welcoming, and open.

Interfaith & Spirituality Resources

We know that for many students spirituality is a vital part of their growth and development.

Equal Access

Hartwick College is committed to providing equal access to qualified students with disabilities.
