Faculty

Haverford faculty members are internationally recognized thought-leaders dedicated to working closely with undergraduates. At large research institutions, it can be difficult to connect with your professors—but the experience here is designed to maximize the amount of time students spend in direct collaboration with faculty. 61% our faculty live on campus, allowing them to develop strong, supportive ties and undertake in-depth research with their students.
