    In this period of great national and global change, we have reason to ponder deeply the nature of hope.

  • An increasing number of international students are being drawn to Haverford by the promise of intellectual exploration, academic rigor, and close-knit community. Once here, they must also contend with unfamiliar food and strange American social customs, and a climate that may be way outside their comfort zone. Easing the intercultural adjustment on campus is a robust support program for students from abroad.

  • Considered pioneering when it was created, one history class was unparalleled in exposing majors to hands-on work in historical research. Nowadays, this work has been incorporated in students’ senior theses.
