The Index returns after two months to chronicle the Haverford community’s efforts to reestablish and strengthen community bonds.
Haverford initiates 2023 with a strong emphasis on students’ mental health and social education. The annual Human Relationships Seminar discusses topics including gender, sexuality, feminism, manhood, healthy relationships, and mental health among the members of the Haverford, Baldwin, and Agnes Irwin community.
The Peer Counseling program continues to sustain the values of brotherhood and empathy. The Gender-Sexuality Alliance works closely with faculties to improve the LGBTQ+ experience in our school community.
Beyond the standard curriculum, these programs nurture students’ emotional intelligence and signal the community’s ongoing commitment to the Haverford values that had dwindled during the years of the pandemic.
As the semester began with a fresh schedule, the Index encourages all members of the Haverford community to take advantage of this trend and self-reflect.
