PCL faculty direct and participate in a range of educational programs, including courses in Harvard degree programs, in intensive executive education programs, and at the Harvard Extension School. Specialized training tailored to the needs of particular jurisdictions or organizations are also offered.

These educational programs feature experienced Harvard faculty; discussion-based instruction, frequently through analysis of case studies of actual disaster situations; peer-to-peer learning; and well-known guest instructors.
