Our goal is to bring the best and brightest to Bryn Mawr without regard for their financial need. In 2016, 54percent of enrolled financial aid applicants were assessed to have financial need (using institutional methodology).
Once here, our students receive a rigorous education that teaches critical, creative and independent habits of thought and expression. For that, we rely on innovative teaching and learning opportunities both in- and outside the classroom. Here are just a few:
- The Career and Civic Engagement Center helps students make connections between their academic work and life beyond the College by offering career development services, intern- and externships, connections with alumnae/i, and civic engagement with community-based organizations;
- Our semester long 360° Course Clusters focus on one problem, theme, or experience for the purpose of interdisciplinary research and scholarship;
- The Emily Balch Seminars challenge first-year students to think about complex, wide-ranging issues across disciplines and from a variety of perspectives;
- Praxis integrates theory and practice through field placements in public health centers, museums, community-development and social service agencies, schools, and local government offices.
This level of innovation requires tremendous support and a deep belief in the outcomes. It's a tall order, but one that’s integral to Bryn Mawr’s commitment to women’s education.
