Given our mission to provide a transformative undergraduate experience, many of our learning goals must be measured over time. Therefore, we ask our current students and alumni to reflect on their experiences at Haverford to help us understand the extent to which we achieve the developmental aspects of our educational mission are being achieved.
The myriad achievements of our distinguished alumni provide useful information about our institutional effectiveness. There are both quantitative and qualitative metrics that we use to track outcomes once our students become alumni. Our students are successful in earning fellowships, gaining acceptance to graduate/professional school , earning advanced degrees , and securing employment in a variety of fields after leaving Haverford.
A robust Career Development Office maintains a network of alumni professionals to connect with and to mentor current students. Our Alumni Relations and Annual Giving Office cultivates relationships with our alumni throughout their lives, and encourages active participation in our online alumni community. Many academic departments also maintain connections with their majors after graduation through departmental alumni webpages, social networking sites, and sustained personal contact between faculty members and alumni.
