We are committed to meeting the unanticipated travel, technology, and emergency financial aid needs of our students affected by the COVID-19 crisis. The Student Emergency Fund helps qualified students cover expenses for food, transportation, laptops, medical care, and home internet access.

Minding the Light

"Mind the Light" is a Quaker saying that refers to the practice of learning to see divine light in others and ourselves. To brighten your day, we are regularly sharing inspiring, joyful, and entertaining stories from our community during these uncertain times.

Online Learning

SwatTalks are virtual seminars featuring professors, students, and alumni. This spring, in light of the exceptional circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we have added additional SwatTalks to discuss the disease and its impact on society. Many past talks are recorded and available for viewing.
