Who We Are

As a liberal arts college for women, Bryn Mawr College is committed to:

encouraging large numbers of young women to major in disciplines in which they have been traditionally underrepresented and to pursue graduate study and careers in the sciences, and
ensuring science literacy among all students.

Our past grants from HHMI have helped us to strengthen science education by supporting interdisciplinary approaches to teaching in biology and the related sciences; undergraduate research opportunities; use of computing technologies in the sciences; and professional development for precollege science teachers.
