Dean's Council

Harvard Kennedy School's Dean's Council comprises leaders from various sectors who believe in improving public policy and public leadership around the globe. Members provide financial support and practical advice that allow the School to advance positive change at the local, state, national, and international levels, all to help people live in safer, freer, more just, and more sustainably prosperous societies.

Dean’s Executive Board

The Harvard Kennedy School Dean’s Executive Board is a small group of business and philanthropic leaders who serve as trusted advisors to the Dean and are among the most committed financial supporters of the School. Drawing on the wide-ranging experience and expertise of its members, the Executive Board helps the Dean to advance the School’s mission in multiple ways. In particular, members of the Executive Board: advise on strategies, business plans, and funding opportunities; facilitate relationships with important constituencies in order to enhance the visibility of the School’s achievements and promote its impact; contribute financially to the School in a leadership manner; and introduce potential financial supporters to the School. Members of the Executive Board are invited to join the Board by the Dean and often rotate out after a period of time.
