Boosting the Reach of the Liberal Arts

Dane Harwood P’12 and Amy Uhrbach P’12 are proving that we truly are “One Ursinus.” They are proud Ursinus parents and, although their son Alex has long-graduated, they remain actively engaged with the college and are ever-passionate champions for the power of a liberal arts education.

“We have watched the college flourish since Alex’s time on campus and also have seen him embrace the role of a lifelong learner, armed with the tools that can only come from an education like the one Ursinus provides its students,” said Uhrbach. Harwood is a member of the college’s Parents Leadership Council, and together the pair have created a scholarship—the Harwood and Uhrbach Family Annual Fund Scholarship—to support out-of-state students pursuing an interdisciplinary course of study. “We can appreciate the highly personalized nature of the Ursinus education,” said Harwood. “Our son benefitted from the mentorship and one-on-one interactions he had with the college’s devoted faculty, people like Jon Volkmer (English). We want to do our part to make that experience possible to students from all walks of life.”
