- The Tri-College Summer Institute Program is sponsored by Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore Colleges for first-year students who are interested in exploring issues of multicultural identity and leadership. The program consists of a series of interactive workshops and seminars. Summer Tri-Co takes place the week immediately preceding the general first-year orientation for each of the three colleges. The goal of the program is to give first-year students the introductory knowledge and experience to thrive in the curricular and co-curricular spheres of their home institutions.
- In the week of January 17th, 2011, we celebrated Haverford College’s Annual Martin Luther King Week, a week dedicated to honoring Dr. King’s legacy and promoting dialogue about civil rights. This year’s theme was MLK In the Age of Obama. What is Dr. King’s relevance today? Are we truly in a post-racial society? How do issues of race, diversity, multiculturalism, and civil rights play out in our nation with our new President Obama? What about on Haverford’s campus?
