Building on the recommendations of Harvard’s Presidential Task Force on Inclusion and Belonging, the Bok Center works to identify those places where Harvard could do better by its students, to research and propose solutions, and to find ways both large and small to foster a culture of equitable and inclusive excellence within teaching and learning in the FAS. We do this, in part, through our own teaching and consulting, by sharing what we understand to be effective, well-tested practices and approaches with the faculty and students who participate in our programming. But we also do this by helping instructors and students who are already motivated to make progress on these challenges to find resources and build intergenerational coalitions equipped to make change on their own.
Here we feature some of the projects on which we’ve partnered with Harvard faculty through our support for Exploratory Seminars.
