In today’s world of “fake news,” “post-truths,” and “alternative facts,” Haverford’s Initiative in Ethical Engagement and Leadership (IEEL) may be more important than ever. So far IEEL has hosted a symposium on scientific ethics, created the Ethical Leadership Summer Institute (ELSI) led by visiting professor Neal Grabell ’77, and funded the “Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility” working group on campus.
Haverford attracts intellectually curious, independent learners who value honesty, collaboration, and above all, new ways of seeing and improving the world.
As you perform real-world research and immerse yourself in hands-on learning, you'll work side-by-side with professors who are at the top of their fields.
Our mascot—the Black Squirrel—has a genetic adaptation that gives it a bold, black coat. Join our distinctive community and stand out from the pack with your fellow Haverfordians.
