Haverford thrives on the dedication and enthusiasm of its volunteer leaders. This October, I cordially invite you to what promises to be one of the most exciting and thought-provoking weekends we've ever hosted at Haverford. The conference will include participation by the Haverford Board of Managers, who will be on campus for their first meeting of the year.


As the "Educating to Lead, Educating to Serve" campaign enters its final months, key volunteers and contributors like you will be engaged and informed.


We will begin by offering various workshops, campaign updates, and training sessions. In addition, renowned Princeton professor Cornel West will deliver the keynote speech at dinner on Friday, and we will dedicate the John B. Hurford ’60 Humanities Center with a formal ceremony at noon on Saturday.
