Harwood Commons: A New Resource for Students to Explore Career Options

Two key Franklin & Marshall offices now have greater capacity to prepare students effectively for lifelong success.

The Office of Student and Post-Graduate Development (OSPGD) and the Ware Institute for Civic Engagement recently relocated to Harwood Commons. This larger, newly renovated space on Hartman Green is the result of a $1.5 million gift from philanthropist and business executive Brett Harwood ’71, an F&M trustee.

"One critical mission should be to assist students along life's path,” said Harwood, who believes a strong liberal arts education provides a strong foundation for any life pursuits. “Preparing for life beyond college is more than a catchphrase, it's a mandate.”
