The Hauser Leaders Program at Harvard Kennedy School hosts a unique portfolio of high-profile leaders and practitioners from across public, nonprofit, and private sectors. Hauser Leaders spend their time on campus advising students and engaging with faculty during richly-programmed visits throughout the academic year. By teaching skill-building and leadership development workshops, engaging key external stakeholders, and advising students and alumni, Hauser Leaders enact the Center for Public Leadership’s mission to develop principled, effective public leaders who make positive change in the world. Hauser Leaders also influence Harvard curriculum by speaking in the classroom, engaging in research and case development, and sharing expertise with lead faculty.
Cambridge, MA: The Center for Public Leadership (CPL) at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) is pleased to announce the appointment of eight Hauser Leaders for the spring 2020 semester.
“These experienced leaders—from the U.S. and around the globe—bring wisdom grounded in years of changemaking and working across difference. This perspective will be immensely valuable to our students, many of whom are beginning their careers as public servants during a particularly complex and volatile time,” said Amb. Wendy R. Sherman, director of the Center for Public Leadership and a professor of the practice at Harvard Kennedy School.
Standing at the heart of the Center for Public Leadership’s community of scholarship and learning, Hauser Leaders contribute in vital ways to the academic life of Harvard, participating in faculty-led research and case development, classroom lectures, and in some cases, independent study and research. Hauser Leaders bring tangible learning to students through workshops, field experiences, coaching meetings, and public events.
