The Bryn Mawr College Annual Diversity and Inclusion Report is a living document, a representation of where we are and where we need to progress as a community addressing issues of diversity, inclusion, and identity.
This page on the College's Diversity web section is a resource for the information on our progress in addressing the many facets of the current Annual Diversity and Inclusion Report, which was released in June 2017.
2016-2017 Annual Diversity and Inclusion Report
Bryn Mawr College President Kim Cassidy sent a message to students, faculty, and staff on June 13, 2017, announcing the release of the 2016-2017 Annual Diversity and Inclusion Report.
Included in the report:
- A continued focus on recruiting and hiring faculty from underrepresented populations.
- Changing the outside scholarship policy so that these scholarships can offset student contributions to college costs (e.g. loan, work study, summer earnings)
- The third Community Day of Learning
- Work with several alumnae leaders to continue support for alumnae/i affinity groups.
History Working Group
In fall 2017, Dean Jennifer Walters is convening a working group made up of students, faculty, staff, and alumnae/i who will examine the College's historical relationship to racism and other forms of exclusion, holding events and opportunities for learning and dialogue.
Get Involved: To nominate yourself or someone else to participate, email Dean Walters.
Immigration Policy Information
Bryn Mawr maintains its policy of non-discrimination in access to education and equal protection under the law, regardless of nationality or citizenship status, and rejections of all forms of discrimination, including those based on national origin. Both Bryn Mawr College and Haverford College have sponsored events for students with lawyers specializing in immigration law and will schedule future sessions as needed.

At a reception on April 28, 2017, the College officially opened Perry Garden on the site of the former Perry House. The Garden, on the site of the former Perry House, will offer our community a space in which to gather and to reflect on our complex history. Initial landscaping was completed last fall.
