Universities have always played an important role in developing solutions to the world’s pressing challenges. By shining a spotlight on public service over the next week, we hope to reinforce Harvard’s commitment to the common good and to recognize the many contributions made by our students, faculty, and staff every day — through teaching, research, hands-on service, and the development of policy solutions.
