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.
