Simply occupying the office of the College Presidency does not give me the right to presume that I know how every member of our community thinks or feels. We do not all agree on politics, culture or even the meaning of words. The very nature of an academic community begs us to question and debate every thought, every statement, and every idea that takes flight.
But there are some ideas that stand clearly apart from all others. When it comes to human decency, justice, and fairness, there is no room for equivocation.
And so I write to every member of our Hartwick Community to say to all who will listen that we condemn the murder of George Floyd. There is no room for bias-fueled hatred at Hartwick. At Hartwick, we stand with all who seek justice for Mr. Floyd’s death. Continue reading the message…

“Hartwick’s Nursing Program provides students a clinical experience in their first year, and many other programs don’t permit a clinical experience until the second or even the third year. I have the opportunity to gain experience over all four years. I feel more prepared for my future occupation.”

“I have worked with nearly a dozen students looking at galaxies containing cool hydrogen, the raw material out of which new stars are created. The project is called the Arecibo Legacy Fast ALFA Survey. It is essentially a massive census of “fertile” galaxies throughout a large portion of the local universe. We used the largest radio telescope in the world for the survey, which covers an enormous portion of the sky (28,000 “moon’s worth”) out to a distance of 800 million light years. As part of this project, several interesting individual galaxies and galaxy clusters were studied as well.”

“I had overwhelming support from many different “advisors” in multiple academic departments. All were very invested in my education. Professor Kevin Schultz helped me take take eight graduate level physics and math courses with professors in each department before attending grad school. He also showed me what it is like to be a physicist in academia and most strongly developed my sense for asking questions in science. I was part of the Undergraduate Arecibo Legacy Fast ALFA Survey (ALFALFA) Team for four years with Professor Parker Troischt. We collaborated with astronomers and scientists at The Arecibo Observatory in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. This is the largest radio astronomy survey to date. My involvement included four on-site visits, off-site observation, a Freedman Prize, a summer internship, and a poster presentation at a national astronomy conference.”
