Hartwick College

About Hartwick College

An independent, residential liberal arts college enrolling approximately 1500 full-time undergraduates, Hartwick embraces the teacher-scholar model, with teaching excellence as the first priority.  Located in the scenic Susquehanna River valley in Oneonta, NY, near the northern foothills of the Catskill Mountains, the College has adopted a Liberal Arts in Practice curriculum and aspires to “be the best at melding liberal arts education with experiential learning.” 

Our Mission
Hartwick College, an engaged community, integrates a liberal arts education with experiential learning to inspire curiosity, critical thinking, creativity, personal courage and an enduring passion for learning.

Our Purpose
Our purpose as a college of the liberal arts and sciences is to educate people who will thrive in and contribute to the world of the future; people who are prepared to meet the personal, intellectual, and social challenges of a rapidly changing and increasingly interdependent world.


Hartwick graduates will be noted as being able to thrive in a world of global interdependence in which people of the broadest range of national, ethnic, social, and personal backgrounds will interact personally and technologically.

To thrive in this context will require that Hartwick students learn to: understand the world from a variety of perspectives; work constructively with people from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences; be avid learners and critical thinkers; communicate effectively and have a well-developed personal presence; be purposeful in their actions and value-based in their decisions; and know how to use information technology resources as a routine tool to enhance effectiveness.

Our Values
We are:

  • a college of the liberal arts and sciences, focusing on the development of the disciplines of thinking, learning, analyzing, communicating, and values-based judgment;
  • a relationship college, focusing on the development of a 24 hour per day, seven day per week, residential educational experience characterized by personal responsibility and collaborative relationships among faculty, students, and staff; and
  • a future-directed college, focusing on educating people in ways that will make them effective and contributing citizens to the world of their future.

Our Character:
By being intentional in fulfilling our values—taking those actions that help us better be what we believe we should be—we are a college of both quality and distinctiveness. We are a future-directed community of learners where students, faculty, and staff are mutually engaged in intellectual, social, and personal learning inside and outside of the classroom. Our curricular and co-curricular educational experience emphasizes: shared and interdependent learning; a balance of challenge and support; a caring commitment to the individual; intellectual, social, and individual rigor; the development of personal responsibility; and approaches that link theory and practice, what we term "The Liberal Arts in Practice."
