Generations of Haverford College students have demonstrated an abiding commitment to the shared community values of trust, concern, and respect. Established in 1897, our Honor Code provides an overarching framework for students to confront peers who may fall short of these community values in their academic pursuits and/or social lives.
The Office of the Dean of the College supports and educates students to develop skills in respectful confrontation, managing interpersonal conflict, and facilitating difficult dialogues. Breaches of community values are most often resolved through informal peer-to-peer confrontation or through an Honor Council proceeding.
Haverford’s Community Guidelines encompass a comprehensive array of policies, procedures, and expectations that impact the Haverford community. The information within the guidelines is often subject to change, so please contact the most appropriate person(s) and/or office(s) to obtain the most up-to-date information.
