Harvard fosters a living and learning environment where you can celebrate your individuality—and where you can explore the shared ideas and experiences that connect us all. You'll soon find that our differences don't divide us. Instead, our community is strengthened by the diverse perspectives, interests, and identities of its members. Our students represent all fifty states and more than 100 countries. When they come to Harvard, they bring their talent, curiosity, and intelligence. They also bring their perspective on the world—an understanding that is deeply tied to their culture, background, and experiences. The result is a diverse, open-minded community where dialogue and debate are not only encouraged—they're inevitable.

I guide strategy and craft vision with an understanding of today’s student and what the future may require of them."
