Microfinance and Impact Investing Initiative

Rooted in the Haverford tradition of embedding in its curricula a strong, ethical commitment to a just world, MI3 engages students in exploring the use of financial and human capital to address social problems.

Housed within the economics department but strongly cross-disciplinary, MI3 leads students to critically assess and respond to such challenges as poverty, environmental risk, and good governance while balancing social and financial goals. Through workshops, special projects, guided research, interaction with guest speakers and engagement with organizations in the field, MI3 presents students co-curricular opportunities to learn and take action to address key social challenges of our world.
