Concern for the environment rests not only with scientific research on issues such as global warming and a wide range of contaminants, but also in how the choices we make individually and as communities directly impact the environment as a whole.
Haverford College has a deep concern and respect for all communities of which it is a part, both social and ecological.
Our mission, therefore, is to educate our community towards an awareness of global concerns and to set a positive example of forward thinking, environmental stewardship for our campus and for other colleges to follow. To do this, Haverford College works to ensure that environmental concern is an integral part of Haverford College's daily life.
Haverford College is a founding member of the Lower Merion Climate Action Coalition.
