fbpx Coronavirus: HKS Responds | Harvard Kennedy School

The pandemic has shown the acute need for outstanding public policy and public leadership: Leaders who are stepping up to this challenge will save lives, preserve economic activity, and strengthen social ties. We have never needed good policies and leaders more than now. Across the Kennedy School, we have been helping public leaders and officials respond effectively. 

Our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our community. At the same time, we are excited about the coming academic year and are committed to delivering an exceptional experience for our students—whether on campus, remotely, or some combination. We are reinventing degree program and executive education courses, and other activities, to take advantage of technology's possibilities, and we are offering new learning opportunities and student internships.
