The 2013-14 Administrative Fellowship Program (AFP) begins in September 2013.  The AFP, which is administered by the Office of the Assistant to the President for Institutional Diversity and Equity, and now currently in its twenty-fourth year of operation, is one of the cornerstones of our diversity and inclusion efforts.  This valuable program seeks to attract talented professionals, and in particular members of historically underrepresented groups, to promote leadership opportunities and careers in higher education. 

Here is a letter regarding the 2013 Administrative Fellows Program from Lisa M. Coleman, Chief Diversity Officer and Special Assistant to the President, as well as an AFP brochure outlining the program  and a Sponsor form which you can submit should your department be interested in a sponsor placement.

Transit Gallery News

Members of the Harvard Longwood Campus community are invited to visit Gordon Hall's Transit Gallery to view a new exhibit, Strange Surroundings, featuring the work of Resa Blatman. This exhibit will be on display April 30th through June 23rd.

 

Please join us for the Art & Science Talk – May 7, 2014, 4p-5p in Goldenson 122 with artist Resa Blatman, and scientists Dr, Aaron Bernstein and Dr. Richard Primack. Reception in the gallery immediately following.

 

In Resa Blatman’s work, her focus lies in current environmental issues, their effect on our landscape and natural resources, and how we perceive the changes in the environment.

 

Dr. Richard Primack’s research is focused on the impact of climate change on plants and animals, conservation biology, and the timing of leaf out and leaf senescence, rare plants and tropical forests.

 

Dr. Aaron Bernstein’s work examines the human health effects of global environmental changes, such as climate change and the loss of biodiversity, with the aim of promoting a deeper understanding of these subjects among students, educators, policy makers, and the public.

 

The Transit Gallery, located in Gordon Hall's lower level corridor, showcases professional artists in the Harvard and greater Boston communities whose works use, explore or are otherwise connected to the sciences.  To learn more about the Transit Gallery and its exhibits, please contact Tania Rodriguez at 432-3809 or via e-mail (tania_rodriguez@hms.harvard.edu).
