CLIF Fund Recipients

The mission of the CLIF is to encourage experimentation to uncover solutions that will enable a culture of belonging and grow a network of innovators striving towards inclusive excellence at Harvard. The Culture Lab Innovation Fund has awarded grants to a group of projects to scale existing efforts and test new ideas through two funding cycles. 

This exciting portfolio of investments represent a breadth of innovative solutions with the capacity to catalyze a culture shift at Harvard. The projects range from web based platforms, assessment tools, awareness campaigns, events, and more. These projects provide a range of solutions that contribute to a growing base of promising practices that can be models for other Schools and units.
