A brief description of the institution’s formal participatory or shared governance bodies:

Students' Council: students at Haverford have a high degree of agency. Student self-governance manifests itself in different ways. Students' Council works with administrators, Board members, and faculty members throughout the year, advocating for the interests and needs of students. Students' Council is responsible for allocating money each semester to the 150 different clubs and organizations that go through the budgeting process. It is also responsible for appointing members to the many different committees on Haverford's campus that deal with different aspects of student life.

Faculty elect their own leadership across key faculty governance committees (FAPC, EPC, AAC -- see below website) that govern the academic program and contribute to broader institutional governance.

The Staff Association Executive Committee is populated through election by staff themselves.

Governing board: Students elect peers to serve as representatives to the board of managers, staff elect staff through the Staff Association Executive Committee to serve as representatives to the board of managers, faculty also elect representatives to the board of managers.
