Housed in the VCAM epicenter, Haverford Innovations Program (HIP) encourages and supports creative and strategic thinking around a problem, a need, a question, or simply an interest - that when fostered presents new solutions and opportunities for entrepreneurial projects and paths of learning.
The program strives to encouraging creative thinking, collaborative efforts, and social engagement through processes of ideation, design and implementation.
Partnering with Haverford’s academic and extracurricular departments as well as the college’s Centers, HIP looks to explore endeavors in the current cultural and technological moment through speakers, workshops, events, and summer immersion.
