Status: Adopted on 10/10/03

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, to foster diversity, and to reduce ethnocentrism and intolerance. Our goal is to increase the presence of underrepresented groups on campus, improve the quality of life of students of racially and ethnically diverse backgrounds, and broaden the understanding, awareness, and appreciation of diversity among all members of the Hartwick community.
The Hartwick College community is dedicated to uncovering, exploring, critiquing, and overcoming the societal conditions that undermine the ideal of a pluralistic society. We strive to foster democratic values and responsible national and global citizenship. We strive to create a climate that maximizes each individual’s capacity to learn and work, and an institution in which diversity is embraced, valued, and celebrated.
