Community update on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Resources

November 16, 2016

Dear Harvard College Students,

Over the past week, I have met and talked with many of you about your anxiety and uncertainty regarding what lies ahead for our country, as well for our Harvard College community. Within that context, I’d like to share an update with you about the work that is ongoing by the College, and members of the Office of Student Life (OSL) specifically, to foster understanding, community, and belonging on our campus.

In Service of Arts

October 25, 2016


Incorporating art into community outreach poses challenges, but the experiences arts-based service organizations provide also offer unique fulfillment. As the roles of service and art in society remain under debate, initiatives at Harvard that meld the two areas continue to evolve, broadening arts access in surrounding communities and shaping campus artistic life.

Greetings from Dean O'Dair

Dear Harvard College Students,

I am writing to say hello and introduce myself as your new Dean of Students. During my first few weeks on campus, I have been struck by the profound sense of community here at Harvard College – among the College staff, faculty, and of course students.
