August 28, 2019

Graduate School of Education professor Julie A. Reuben will serve as the new faculty director of Phillips Brooks House, in a move to create a new model for public service at Harvard. In addition to Dr. Reuben, Travis A. Lovett, Director of the Center for Public Interest Careers, will serve as the Assistant Dean for Civic Engagement and Service.

Sheila C. Thimba, Dean for Administration and Finance at Harvard College, cited the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics as a model for promoting collaboration across Harvard’s schools, saying, “[The] Safra Center — I've worked with them very closely in thinking about what it means to elevate civic engagement on campus. They've convened a group from across Harvard, including the Medical School, the Public Health School, and so on, to talk about what the initiatives are in each of those areas and how those initiatives can build off each other.”
