Haverford Innovations Program

The Haverford Innovations Program (HIP) encourages and supports creative and strategic thinking around a problem, a need, a question, or simply an interest. The goal is to find new solutions and opportunities for entrepreneurial projects and paths of learning.

For the second year in a row a team of Fords was named the winner of the Tri-Co Hackathon by a panel of faculty and industry judges. The winning team, called Gradual—from top left: Bella Muno '21, Ziyao (Claire) Wang '20, Blien Habtu '21, Jason Ngo '21, and Iryna Khovryak '22—made a website that students can use to map their major requirements and ensure that they are on track to graduate.

Traditions

Fords enjoy myriad traditional events such as the annual Lloyd Lights decorating competition; Pinwheel Day; the annual weekend throwdown at the end of the year called Haverfest; and, most importantly, Fall and Spring Plenary.

Every year on April Fool’s Day, students from the different science departments adorn their part of the KINSC with decorations, such as these Spongebob Squarepants-themed designs the biology students made in Zubrow Commons. Photo: Patrick Montero.

Then & Now: Machine Shop

Machine Shop

The circa-1925 machine shop in long-gone Whitall Hall was a prime teaching tool for the engineering program of the time. According to the 1925 course catalog, there were woodworking and metalworking shops, a drafting room, and a materials laboratory for the testing of boilers, engines, air compressors, and the like.

Come back tomorrow to see the machine shop "Now."

The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship

The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship grew out of faculty and student interests that emerged in the late 1990s. Since then, the Center has developed and expanded into a flourishing nexus of social responsibility, civic engagement, and global peace work, both on campus and in the greater community.

The Friend in Residence program brings gifted and experienced Quakers to campus for extended interactions with students, staff, faculty, and the community to stimulate reflection on the connections between academic pursuits and “letting one’s life speak.”
