Do You Know Your Representatives? The Faces of Students’ Council and Honor Council

A total of thirty-nine elected representatives make up Haverford College’s Students’ Council and Honor Council. Earlier this month, editors from the Clerk sat in the lobby of the Dining Center to ask passing students if they could name just five: their class representative in Students’ Council and their four class representatives in Honor Council. Many students could not name one.

As part of the Clerk’s focus on transparency, the accessibility of information, and the role of decision-making bodies like Students’ Council and Honor Council on campus this month, we asked all thirty-nine representatives to help us make them known to the student body that elected them. Over the course of about three weeks, we were able to photograph thirty-five representatives and gather an impressive list of their many other commitments: activities, leadership positions, and jobs on and off campus. Below, for the first time, all of this information is available in one place.
