Maurice Rippel and Students' Council address the student body during plenary
Tuesday, February 5, 2019

Plenary

Plenary is a critical mechanism for student self-governance at Haverford College. Students gather to raise, discuss, and debate issues on campus. Resolutions passed by the Students’ Association are viewed as the will of the body, and Students’ Council is then tasked with the carrying out and upholding of any changes or initiatives.
