Each day, members of the Harvard community interact with students, teachers, and families across Boston. For example, Harvard students serve as tutors in after-school programs, faculty members offer lectures to community groups, and schools offer mentored research opportunities to talented students. These connections benefit the communities on both sides of the Charles — enriching lives, forming lasting bonds, opening minds, and expanding opportunities.

This work is a key extension of the public service ethic called for in Harvard’s charter, and the University takes great pride in its longstanding partnerships with communities in Boston.
