Harrisburg University’s Digital Commons is intended to serve primarily as a repository and showcase for student dissertations, theses, projects, and other notable work as well as the distinguished academic work of faculty and staff. This allows the University to document its contribution to scholarly discourse and practice across disciplines.
Digital Commons directly supports HU's mission which states, "The Harrisburg University of Science and Technology offers innovative academic and research programs in science and technology that respond to local and global needs. The institution fosters a diverse community of learners, provides access and support to students who want to pursue a career in science and technology, and supports business creation and economic development."
In Digital Commons, you will primarily find three types of items.
These projects, theses, and dissertations have been accepted by the University in partial fulfillment for graduation requirements.
Faculty at HU actively contribute research to further scholarship in their professional communities.
Exceptional student works (assignments, papers, etc.) have been selected by faculty as worthy of highlight.
