Mission Statement

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

Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

    Bryn Mawr is quite small, but it still has many opportunities. The campus feels a lot bigger because of the consortium with nearby schools. Having a new experience and a change of scenery is as easy as a bus ride to an event at Haverford or Swarthmore or taking a class at UPenn. This consortium really expands the academic and social opportunities here. But I also love to just stay on Bryn Mawr's gorgeous campus! The location is perfect. Bryn Mawr is in a nice little town that's just a train ride away from Philadelphia and not far from New York either. The community on the campus and the anything-goes zaniness really feels like home to me. I was a little unsure about going to a women's college, but it makes the community stronger and I feel very comfortable and empowered in this environment. Bryn Mawr's rich traditions also strengthen the community in a way that just wouldn't be as effective in a coed environment.
