The Student Life Division facilitates co-curricular learning and active engagement for every student at Haverford College. Our expert team of professional staff across several offices and departments collaborate with one another–and, importantly, with students–to foster meaningful out-of-classroom experiences. We work together to create an intentionally challenging and supportive environment that is designed to help students achieve their academic and personal goals.
Our collective work focuses on five key domains of student growth and development––health and wellbeing, academic thriving, equity and justice, community building, and life beyond Haverford. This holistic approach imbues the Haverford experience with meaning, impact, and consequence – empowering and preparing students for today and tomorrow.
