Student Engagement - Black Students' League

Haverford has more than 125 student groups that publish magazines, host symposia, sing a cappella, discuss religion and spirituality, stay politically active, maintain a system of student self-government, dance, demonstrate, and create.

The Black Students' League's annual fashion show focused more on an art exhibition and performances centered around the beauty of the black skin and body, rather than its usual focus on fashion designers and clothes. Photo: Claire Blood-Cheney '20.

Study Abroad Photo Contest

“As a queer person of color, I would say that my study abroad experience not only enabled me to engage with and consider my identity within the freedom of another culture, but the time spent away from America also helped me to contextualize previous experiences and believe in a wider, more pronounced version of global citizenship.” – Matthew Ridley '19

Each year more than 130 Haverford students take advantage of the opportunity to study abroad.

Each year more than 130 Haverford students take advantage of the opportunity to study abroad.
