College Diversity Statement

Hartwick College values pluralism, a state in which diverse groups co-exist and interact without necessarily losing their individual identities. We seek to critically address and reduce all forms of prejudice, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, economic class, sexual orientation, gender, country of origin, learning differences, religious preference, disability and age, and work to foster mutual respect among all people. Our goal is to increase the presence and support for these and other underrepresented groups on campus, and to broaden the understanding, awareness, respect for, appreciation of, and dialogue about different aspects of diversity among all members of the Hartwick community.

The Hartwick College community is dedicated to discovering and overcoming the conditions that undermine an inclusive and pluralistic society. We strive to foster inclusive values and responsible local, national, and global citizenship. Through valuing our own diversity and the diversity of others, we strive to create a climate that maximizes each individual’s capacity to learn and, in turn, creates an institution in which diversity is embraced, valued, celebrated, and welcomed.

The Hartwick College community recognizes that diversity is not an end result, but a means of achieving a set of evolving objectives. Accordingly, the College shall periodically review its diversity-related policies, practices, and programs to determine their achievements, and to adjust them as necessary to further these objectives.
