Heidelberg College was founded in 1850 by members of the German Reformed Church who named it after the Heidelberg Catechism of 1563. Seeking to minister to the German population of Ohio, the Revs. Reuben and Jeremiah H. Good established a church-affiliated institution staffed by a largely theologically trained faculty.
Research is a critical component of a college education that improves your critical thinking, writing, and professional skills. That’s why it’s part of the Heidelberg experience. You’ll work one-on-one with professors who help you through the steps of conducting research, analyzing results, writing papers, and getting it all published.
The Heidelberg community supports and celebrates research in several ways including our annual Student Research Conference, senior honors projects, and unique research opportunities such as our cadaver lab, animal lab, and the National Center for Water Quality Research.
Heidelberg University is a student-focused community with a significant commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty, staff, and students. Individuals who value, demonstrate, and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion are preferred candidates for Heidelberg’s vacant positions. Additionally, we are seeking faculty who want to contribute as able and interested to the University’s initiatives to improve our student recruitment, engagement, retention, success, persistence, graduation, and placement.
