Since its founding in 1864, Swarthmore College has given students the knowledge, insight, skills, and experience to become leaders for the common good. Offering a liberal arts and engineering curriculum, the College is private, yet open to all regardless of financial need. It is also decidedly global in outlook, drawing students from around the world and all 50 states. The diversity of perspectives represented by Swarthmore students, faculty, and staff - including different viewpoints, identities, and histories - contributes to the community's strong sense of open dialogue and engagement with ideas and issues.
So much of what Swarthmore stands for, from its commitment to curricular breadth and rigor to its demonstrated interest in facilitating discovery and fostering social responsibility, lies in the quality and passion of its faculty. A student/faculty ratio of 8:1 ensures that students have close, meaningful engagement with their professors, preparing the former to translate the skills and understanding gained at Swarthmore into the mark they want to make on the world.
The College's Honors program features small groups of dedicated and accomplished students working closely with faculty; an emphasis on independent learning; ongoing dialogue between students and their peers, teachers, and examiners; and an examination at the end of two years' study by outside scholars.
Swarthmore's idyllic, 425-acre arboretum campus features rolling lawns, a creek, wooded hills, and hiking trails, and is located just 11 miles from Philadelphia.
Swarthmore College recognizes that attracting and retaining outstanding faculty and staff is critical to maintaining our academic standard of excellence. Toward that end, we offer a high quality, comprehensive program of benefits. These benefits represent an important component of a faculty or staff member's total compensation. More detailed information about our benefits can be found online at http://www.swarthmore.edu/human-resources/benefits.
The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Development, within the Dean's Office, is charged with facilitating the College's effort to achieve and sustain a diverse and culturally pluralistic campus.
The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Development assists the community in active discussion about the complex issues of social diversity (race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, religion/spirituality, ability, political ideology, and national origin), within the context of pursuing a liberal arts education.
In concert with students, faculty, and staff, the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Development directly plans, supports, and/or provides direct leadership in implementing programs that supports the College's commitment to diversity and "learning across difference."
