Haverford College Institutional Advancement Career Opportunities

Haverford College is consistently ranked among the top 20 undergraduate liberal arts colleges in the United States. Located outside Philadelphia, it is highly regarded for its rigorous and intensely personal undergraduate education, which is delivered in a beautiful arboretum setting and anchored in its Honor Code. The vast majority of students live on campus and are active in athletics, student clubs, internships, service activities and self-governance. Haverford was founded by Quakers in 1833, who believed that academic excellence, offered in a setting of tolerance and mutual respect, would serve a larger goal of “educating the whole person.” While Haverford is nonsectarian today, those same values continue to inspire and distinguish its students and alumni.

At Haverford, this is an exciting time. It is in the midst of developing a new strategic plan that will position the College for its next decade and lead up to its 200th anniversary. Expecting to conclude in the next six months, this collaborative community-wide effort will set the institutional aspirations and priorities that will inform its next comprehensive campaign.

In tandem with the development of Haverford’s new strategic plan, Institutional Advancement has created a data-informed multi-year and multifaceted plan that undergirds growing the Division, recalibrating several departments, adding new functions, and preparing for a robust campaign. Over the next two years, Institutional Advancement will expand its staffing between 25-40%, across multiple areas (Philanthropy, Alumni and Constituent Engagement, Advancement Operations, and Charitable Gift Planning), and at all levels of its operations, such as Advancement Communications, Volunteer Recruitment and Development, Principal Gifts, and Analytics and Predictive Modeling.

Institutional Advancement is seeking enthusiastic, high-caliber professionals to join its existing team of excellent colleagues and help propel Haverford forward through the launch of its comprehensive campaign and fulfillment of Institutional Advancement’s multi-year and multifaceted plan.
