Events

PEPG events are intended to create an open academic environment in which top scholars can present and discuss the best current thinking on education policy and governance. Towards this end, the program has hosted numerous conferences and seminars since its founding in 1996. And in 2003, we initiated the Education Policy Colloquia Series with the expressed purpose of providing the Harvard community with greater access to cutting-edge education research.
