HKS Shadowing Initiative Program

June 28, 2012


Harvard Kennedy School's Student Government launched its first Shadowing Initiative program during the January term of the 2011-12 academic year through the Alumni Relations Office and Office of Career Advancement. The program paired a student with an alumnus, with the alumnus hosting the student at his or her workplace for a half or full day. About 50 students participated in the program in its inaugural year. Student organizers hope to make this an annual event, matching pairings across the world.

“This student-driven initiative was a huge hit with the HKS students and alumni who took part. What a great way for students to get a first-hand look at the possibilities post HKS, and for our alumni to stay connected,” said Mary Beaulieu, assistant dean & director of the Office of Career Advancement.
