The Corporation

The Corporation of Haverford College is the holder of the legal title to Haverford’s assets, and it is also a partner in advancing the College’s mission. While it has delegated fiduciary oversight of the College to the Board of Managers, the Corporation has retained as its priority strengthening and enriching Haverford’s Quaker character. Our Quaker heritage and values contribute positively to the College’s distinctiveness and institutional strength.

  • Alignment. Continue to partner with the Corporation Advisory Committee to maximize the Corporation’s positive impact on the College and its mission, both strategically and spiritually.
  • Quaker character. Support the Director of Quaker Affairs and Faculty Director of Quaker Affairs in their work to provide a wide array of Quaker and spiritual programs, opportunities for community engagement, a vibrant conversation about Quaker values and practices in the community, and greater involvement by Corporation members on campus.
  • Academic enrichment. With the fundraising complete to endow the Douglas and Dorothy Steere Professorship in Quaker Studies, work to position it effectively within the faculty structure and hire its first incumbent.
