Expanding Access: First-Gen Faculty and Staff Speak

Swarthmore faculty and staff members reflect on their experiences as first-generation and low-income students, which drives their dedication to today's students.


Diversity: The Key to Discovering New Knowledge

In an op-ed at the Philadelphia Inquirer, President Valerie Smith writes, "We do not commit to diversifying our institutions out of a charitable impulse to uplift the underserved. Certainly, opening our institutions to students from underrepresented communities will improve their life choices and inspire others to follow in their footsteps. But the process of change goes both ways. When we commit to diversifying our institutions, we improve our institutions as well."
