Bryn Mawr College


The mission of Bryn Mawr College is to provide a rigorous education and to encourage the pursuit of knowledge as preparation for life and work. Bryn Mawr teaches and values critical creative and independent habits of thought and expression in an undergraduate liberal arts curriculum for women and in coeducational graduate programs in arts and sciences and social work and social research. Bryn Mawr seeks to sustain a community diverse in nature and democratic in practice for we believe that only through considering many perspectives do we gain a deeper understanding of each other and the world. Since its founding in 1885 the College has maintained its character as a small residential community which fosters close working relationships between faculty and students. The faculty of teacher/scholars emphasizes learning through conversation and collaboration primary reading original research and experimentation. Our cooperative relationship with Haverford College enlarges the academic opportunities for students and their social community. Our active ties to Swarthmore College and the University of Pennsylvania and the proximity of the city of Philadelphia further extend the opportunities available at Bryn Mawr. Living and working together in a community based on mutual respect personal integrity and the standards of a social and academic Honor Code each generation of students experiments with creating and sustaining a self-governing society within the College. The academic and co-curricular experiences fostered by Bryn Mawr both on campus and in the College's wider setting encourage students to be responsible citizens who provide service to and leadership for an increasingly interdependent world.
