The faculty on the Public Policy Standing Committee come primarily from Harvard Kennedy School. The faculty members listed below have a strong interest in the activities of the Public Policy program. In most cases they are advising current students. With the chairman of the PhD program, Robert N. Stavins, they form an executive committee that oversees the current structure of the doctoral program, and recommends change as the program grows. Note that other faculty at Harvard Kennedy School, the Economics Department, and the Government Department at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences also advise students in this program.
