This policy is consistent with relevant governmental statutes and regulations, including those pursuant to Title IX of the Federal Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended. Inquiries concerning Title IX may be addressed to Steve Watter, Title IX Coordinator (Chase 213, 610-896-4246, [email protected]), and other policies of non-discrimination may be referred to the Affirmative Action Officers or to the Director of the Office for Civil Rights, U.S. Department of Education, Washington, DC.

For Faculty & Staff:
Haverford College is committed to providing a work environment free from all forms of unlawful discrimination because of sex, race, color, religion, age, sexual orientation, disability, genetic information, national origin, citizenship, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. This policy applies to all aspects of the employment relationship, such as recruitment, selection, training, promotion, salaries, benefits, discipline, terminations, and all other terms and conditions of employment.
In keeping with Haverford College’s long-standing policy of non-discrimination, the Board of Managers of Haverford College has established a program of affirmative action. The goal of this program is to attract and retain staff of high quality and diverse backgrounds and to do so without discrimination on the basis of sex, race, color, religion, age, sexual orientation, disability, genetic information, national origin, citizenship, veteran status, or any other protected characteristic. In accordance with the Affirmative Action Policy, the College recruits persons in these protected categories as candidates for Haverford positions that become available. The results of the hiring process are reviewed regularly by the Affirmative Action Officer (AAO) to make certain these goals are being met.
More information is available in the faculty and staff handbooks.

Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP)
MSP is a student-run networking and mentoring program dedicated to the
goal of academic excellence. Student coordinators, in collaboration
with faculty and deans, plan workshops designed to communicate the
wisdom and experience of upperclassmen to new students. Open to all
students in all disciplines, MSP sponsors workshops, panel
discussions, trips to graduate school fairs, as well as convening
informal gatherings that foster mentoring.
There are also a host of student-run affinity groups spanning many backgrounds, identities, faiths, and nationalities, through which students find support, programming, and community.
The Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program was designed as part of a long–term commitment by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to help remedy, and eventually eradicate, the serious shortage of faculty of color in higher education. Through the comprehensive mentoring and financial support which the MMUF Program provides to selected Fellows, starting at the end of their sophomore year, the Program seeks to provide the requisites for a successful preparation for training for, and entering the professoriate.
