Community Programs

Harcum is not only known in the community for its commitment to education, but also for its service to the community. Harcum offers many services that are enjoyed by students, employees, and neighbors.

Harcum Dental Clinic

In 1990 Harcum built the Abram & Goldie Cohen Dental Center as an on-campus teaching facility for the Dental Hygiene, Dental Assisting, and Expanded Functions Dental Assisting Programs. In 2003, the facility was expanded and 8 more chairs were added, bringing the total to 16 chairs.

With support from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, Harcum received funds to do community outreach to attract under and un-insured patients including the elderly.

The Clinic now operates 25 hours per week, 11 months of the year. There are currently 1,002 patients; approximately 33% are 55 and older. The clinic handles approximately 1,400 patient visits per year. In 2010, the Clinic had a waiting list of 20 patients averaging 5 new patients per week.

Harcum Music School

Harcum Music School was founded in 1985 when Medley Music of Bryn Mawr transferred ownership of their teaching division to Harcum College. The Music School offers credit and non-credit courses for Harcum students and also provides personal and group lessons for people from around the Delaware Valley.


Harcum offers an on-site daycare, available to all students and employees. The daycare is part of the KinderCare Learning Centers and is staffed by highly trained teachers.

Kevin D. Marlo Little Theatre

The Little Theatre, originally built in 1920, was restored and re-opened in 2011 as the Kevin D. Marlo Little Theatre. The restoration allows it to once again showcase Harcum’s creativity and engage the Harcum community and area residents through performances, concerts, and exhibits. The Theatre will also be a warm gathering space for reunions, lectures, and small conferences.
