Since 2011 College Communications has produced a unique homepage each weekday to spotlight the rich diversity of Haverford's academic programming, extracurricular offerings, campus culture, and community members' accomplishments.
For Sophie Frank ’19, a comparative literature major, a French minor, and a concentration in Africana studies means having the tools to tell the stories that don’t always make it into the limelight. This summer, at her internship at ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives, funded by the John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Los Angeles local is hoping to learn and share the stories of the LGBTQ community in her hometown.
The Chesick Scholars program is a four-year academic mentoring and leadership program for exceptional students from underrepresented or under-resourced backgrounds. This year’s 15 scholars capped their five-week summer session with a symposium on identity formation and social reproduction.
For the fifth year in a row, four Haverford students are living in Dalun, Ghana, a community in the country’s Northern Region, as part of the Lagim Tehi Tuma Fellowship, which is co-sponsored by the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship and Bryn Mawr’s Leadership, Innovation, and Liberal Arts Center.
The John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities (HCAH) supports the intellectual and artistic ambitions of faculty, students, and staff. They foster collaboration, experimentation, and critical thought through seminars, symposia, research and curricular support, working and reading groups, arts and performance residencies, exhibitions and visual culture programming.
Hoping to help bolster community and culture through art, Alie Lin ’19 is interning at the Asian Arts Initiative in Philadelphia. With funding from the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship and John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, the comparative literature major and gender and sexuality studies concentrator is helping reach out to community members and strengthening inter-organizational relationships.
