Dear Harvard College Students,
Last fall I asked you to share your thoughts with me about the role of extracurricular activities on campus and about how we might work together to foster a healthier balance between academic and extracurricular pursuits in support of a transformational Harvard College experience.
I want to sincerely thank those of you who took the time to respond to me. It is critical that we give voice to our goals for a Harvard education and that we set collective expectations for the kind of community we want to build together at the College.
I would like to share what I learned from your emails and from my conversations with many of you over these past months at a Town Hall meeting this Wednesday, March 4, from 5 – 6 p.m. in the Phillips Brooks House Parlor Room. I hope you will be able to join me.
Thank you again for your energy and thoughtfulness in reflecting on extracurricular activities as one dimension of the College experience. I look forward to continuing this important conversation with you on Wednesday.
