Mr. Harsh also teaches topical seminars for the university's Honors Program and
Adirondack Experience Program and has
published articles on gender inclusion in curricula and teaching methods and on the
experiences of Jamaican migrant workers in local apple orchards. In 1987 he received a
Faculty Appreciation Award from the Student Life Committee at Clinton Community College
and in 1996 the Distinguished Faculty Award of Phi Eta Sigma, the freshman honor society
at Plattsburgh State University. In August 2000 his work as an EOP counselor was
recognized with the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Professional Service.
In his spare time, Harsh is an avid sailor, swimmer, golfer,
fisherman, and skier. He has
also created two dubious stage roles, performing as Elvis Trebeck for campus
jeopardy contests and as LaDona Altona, the shy chanteuse from the North
Country's Tri-cities Opera, at a campus employee luncheon and at other, less
upscale venues. He and his
wife, Carole, a housing program coordinator, are the parents of two children and
"commute" to work from their "deep rural" home in the Adirondacks.
