Haverford’s International Council marked an historic occasion this year when it held its annual meeting in Hong Kong. The event, on  March 16, was the first time the  group has met in Asia. Made up of dedicated alumni, The International Council fosters a greater awareness of Haverford internationally, helps the College seize academic and outreach opportunities outside the U.S., and offers professional expertise and personal resources  to assist Haverford’s leadership in a variety of ways.

At this year’s meeting, which was held at the W Hotel in Kowloon, incoming President Dan Weiss was on hand to meet the members of the Council, answer their questions about his vision for his presidency, which begins July 1, and seek out their perspectives on global education and the future of Haverford.
