‘We need to be smarter about how we invest’: Harvard University’s Dean
By Sarah Kaplan and Sarah StoneThe Washington Post StaffThe University of Washington is preparing for the next generation of leaders.
With a new dean and new faculty, the university has taken an ambitious new course, but its new emphasis on teaching has been met with skepticism.
A new dean is overseeing a campus that is undergoing a radical transformation.
And Harvard is putting its own stamp on the education of its students and faculty.
In the midst of the crisis, a new president and a new team of faculty and administrators are trying to bring order to a campus beset by unrest, turmoil and dysfunction.
As Harvard prepares for a new generation of leadership, it is grappling with questions that transcend its campus and its history, including whether its leaders should be able to make a statement and how to build an institution that is truly inclusive.
Here are five lessons from Harvard’s transition to the 21st century:1.
We need to get our priorities right.
Harvard’s new dean has said the university will focus on “building a new, more open and inclusive campus for all.”
Harvard has a long history of creating a more welcoming and inclusive environment for students, faculty and staff.
Harvesting from a history of racism and sexism, Harvard is also grappling with the impact of the racial and ethnic diversity that was enshrined in the university’s founding documents.
Harvey Mudd, a leading advocate for women and African-Americans, was one of Harvard’s earliest and most influential students and administrators.
He died in 2017 at the age of 91.
Harold Weisberg, a professor of history, was another Harvard institution’s most prominent African-American, and he has been a fierce critic of the university.
His name has been used as a tool by students and alumni to argue that Harvard is not welcoming to all people.
In his book, “Harvard on Fire: A History of Racial, Ethnic and Gender Discrimination at Harvard,” Weisberger says that the university “has had an institutional tradition of discriminating against black students, but that this has been in an effort to accommodate the white, middle-class, upper-middle-class students who came in during the Great Migration of the early 19th century.”1.
The university needs to be more inclusive.
In a statement, the new dean said that the goal of the next administration is to “ensure that Harvard does not exclude anyone, regardless of race, creed, sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.”
But the statement does not include the goal to be “more inclusive.”
Harvard, for example, says that “students should feel welcome, even encouraged, to apply for any undergraduate position and that Harvard must also foster a welcoming climate for all people.”
Harvey W. Mudd was one example of a student who was rejected from Harvard for sexual orientation.
In a 2015 interview, W.M. said he was rejected for an engineering job because he was gay.
Harley W. was not the only student at Harvard who faced discrimination because of his sexuality.
In 2016, a student at Columbia University who was gay was denied admission to a class because of gender identity.
In 2017, a gay student was denied a tenure-track job at a large private university because of the sexual orientation of his former boss.
At Harvard, many students have been harassed, bullied and even killed for their sexual orientation, but it is still a crime in some states.
Harvester of the century: The Harvard dean.1.
There should be no barriers.
Harvy Widmer-Schultz, who took over in 2016, says he is committed to the university becoming more inclusive and that “we must be more transparent about how diversity is reflected in our academic and administrative processes and how we have a culture of inclusion and respect for all members of our community.”
The Harvard statement does acknowledge the importance of the LGBTQ community, saying that Harvard “should be a place where everyone is treated equally.”
But it does not say that all students, regardless, should feel safe and welcome at Harvard.
The statement does say that “Harvey’s death has been an enormous loss for the Harvard community and our family.
It has been our hope that he would have been a voice for all of us to fight for equality in the workplace, in housing and in the public square.
That legacy is one that we hope the next president will honor and protect.”
The statement also acknowledges the challenges facing Harvard’s LGBTQ students.
It says that Harvard will continue to fight to protect LGBTQ students from discrimination and harassment and that the campus will be a more accepting environment for all students and staff members.
“But the statement doesn’t say that the school should stop discriminating against LGBTQ people, saying only that “the university must remain committed to fostering a welcoming and respectful climate for everyone.
“Harvest’s legacy as an LGBTQ campus, a symbol of American diversity, is at stake.
It is the legacy of the University of Massachusetts, which was founded in 1834 by two women who were the
