MPP Core Faculty

Harvard Kennedy School is a place where ideas meet practice as scholars and practitioners conduct research on pressing public policy problems and share their insights with students. In addition to research and teaching, our faculty members are actively engaged in the affairs of the world -- shaping public policy, advising governments, and helping to run major institutions in the United States and abroad. The learning in our classrooms reflects this reality.

The following Harvard Kennedy School faculty members currently teach core courses for the MPP Program. Given the size of the MPP class, these core courses are taught in multiple sections. 

The links below provide some background information on our AY2016-2017 core faculty's interests and experience.
