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 Colloquium Series with the expressed purpose of providing the Harvard community with greater access to cutting-edge education research.

Spring 2020 Colloquium Series

The Spring 2020 Colloquium Series is postponed due to coronavirus outbreak.

Please visit the Harvard Kennedy School's COVID-19 page for further updates.

 

All events run from 12 to 1:15 p.m. Events are free and open to the public. For those outside of the Harvard community, please RSVP to pepg_administrator@hks.harvard.edu. A light lunch will be provided.
