Because GSAS students may have “dual citizenship” in other Schools, there are alsocollaborative efforts with offices in these Schools. For example, GSAS has collaborated with colleagues in the Chan School of Public Health,Harvard Business School, and the Kennedy School of Government to develop GSAS-wide pipeline andretention programs. Collaborations exist with diversity and inclusion (D&I) officesacross Harvard on recruitment efforts. Finally, under the leadership of the Officeof the Assistant to the President for Institutional Diversity and Equity, individualsinvolved in D&I efforts across Harvard come together periodically to learn about and share best practices with each other.
This practice provides a good example of recognition that cross-School collaborations can enhance diversity and inclusion work in particular Schools, especially whenthose collaborations help Schools buildcommunities for students from minority groups.
