Since its inception, we have been fortunate enough to hear from dozens of prominent Harvard faculty, local business leaders, and alumni as part of our "Meet the Scholar" speaker series. Topics ranged from public policy to the fine arts and beyond. In celebration of the Graduate Common's 15th anniversary, we are excited to announce the theme for the 2024 Meet the Scholar series: Turning Strangers into Neighbors.
Join us as renowned Harvard scholars share diverse perspectives through intimate discussions on building inclusive communities, the power of urban design, immigrant and refugee journeys, and the future of technology in work and education. These gatherings, hosted by our Faculty Directors in common spaces, offer a unique opportunity to engage directly with brilliant minds outside of a traditional classroom setting.
