Since its founding in 1833, Haverford College has evolved significantly, but it retains its distinctive character as a residential learning community rooted in Quaker values and dedicated to developing in young people the highest standards of academic rigor and personal integrity. In a rapidly changing and uncertain world, this resonant mission is more relevant than ever.

At this transitional moment in the College’s history, we see great opportunity and seek to articulate a compelling vision for the next period of institutional development. Our aim is to put forth ambitious goals and aspirations that embrace the future while respecting our past, to integrate strategic and financial priorities in a way that assures the long‐term excellence and financial sustainability of the College, and to unite internal and external constituents in common cause.
