School Information
Harvey Mudd College, the nation’s top liberal arts college of engineering, science and mathematics, was chartered in December 1955. Two years later, in 1957, when the Space Race made technical education a priority in the United States, the College opened its doors. The founders’ vision—to attract the nation’s brightest students and offer them a rigorous scientific and technological education coupled with a strong curricular emphasis in the humanities and social sciences—has been successfully realized and expanded. In 1963, the College initiated the nationally recognized Clinic Program, which allows student teams to solve problems posed by sponsoring industry, government and nonprofit organizations. The emphasis on undergraduate research for all students has led to Harvey Mudd graduates earning PhD degrees in science and engineering at one of the highest rates in the nation. Number of students: 893. Gender ratio: 50 percent female, 50 percent male. Student-to-faculty ratio: 8:1.
General Information
Social Justice Clinic: Like many college students, Harvey Mudd students are concerned about social justice, and look for ways to apply their skills in ways that can support societal inequities and the threats to our natural world that impact us all. In 2018, the college launched a program to commit to two Social Justice Clinics each year to provide technical support to community-based organizations working in areas including educational, environmental, economic and social justice.
