Academic Partnerships

Through the Tri-College Consortium, Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Swarthmore students take classes at all three schools and frequently collaborate on extracurricular activities.

The new Tri-Co Philly Program is a semester-long, non-residential program that provides students both curricular and co-curricular activities in nearby Philadelphia.

The urban setting of Philadelphia provides a sense of place to enhance the classroom experience, helping students learn firsthand how the material in the courses is informed by the environment around them.

Moved to Run

Haverford alumni are stepping up as first-time political candidates, boldly challenging longtime incumbents and the political “machine” in their communities. For all, the decision to seek office is an effort to live their values.

This photo from the exhibit was taken by Los Hermanos Mayo, a photographic collective active in Mexico during the middle of the 20th century.

Fulbright Award

"I truly believe, in this time of great political turmoil, that the arts can be one of the most effective agents for positive change. They can bring communities together into common spaces and create shared experiences, which can open up productive conversation about difficult issues in ways that otherwise might seem impossible." — Anna Russell '14.
