As announced in December, the Harvard Corporation will expand from seven to thirteen members, as part of a broader set of changes involving the Corporation’s composition and work.

All members of the extended Harvard community are invited to send advice on the search and nominate individuals who would be strong candidates for the Corporation. Email advice and nominations to corporationsearch@harvard.edu or mail them to the Corporation Search Committee, Harvard University, Loeb House, 17 Quincy St., Cambridge, MA 02138.  Communications will be held in strict confidence.

Corporation members will be joined on the search committee by three colleagues from the Board of Overseers: Joshua Boger, Ph.D. ’79, founder and former CEO of Vertex Pharmaceuticals and chair of the Harvard Medical School Board of Fellows; Diana Nelson ’84, director of the Carlson Companies and former co-chair of the Harvard College Fund; and Robert Shapiro ’72, J.D. ’78, a partner at Ropes & Gray, past president of both the Harvard Alumni Association and the Harvard Law School Association, and a member of the recent governance review committee focused on the Corporation’s composition and work.
