Multicultural Alumni Action Group




Impacting the HC Community Multicultural Experience

The Multicultural Alumni Action Group (MAAG) exists to ensure Haverford is an inclusive community where all Haverfordians can thrive – from prospective students to seasoned alums. Through outreach, institutional partnerships, mentoring, data collection and fundraising, MAAG aims to directly support and impact the quality of multicultural experiences on a campus that will become more diverse in the coming decades. By forging a critical partnership with the College, MAAG will be an integral resource in Haverford’s ability to model what it means to be a proactive, high-achieving, and thriving multicultural community.
