  • FAS Office for Faculty Affairs

    The Office for Faculty Affairs (OFA) is a home base of support for faculty and research scholars at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS). Its network of deans, appointment administrators, and other staff members extends throughout each of the academic divisions and the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. We work with faculty and administrators every day, providing information and advice on appointments, promotions, professional development opportunities, leave, retirement, and other aspects of academic life. With the FAS deans, we conduct data-driven and qualitative analyses, develop policies, and help launch initiatives to enhance faculty life. To further support our faculty, we organize orientations and trainings and publish handbooks on a variety of subjects. Our ultimate purpose is to help the FAS to build an outstanding faculty and to create an environment where these gifted scholars and teachers can do their best work.
  • Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics

    The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics seeks to advance teaching and research on ethical issues in public life. The Center stands at the core of what is now a well-established movement at Harvard and throughout the world that is giving ethics a prominent place in the curriculum and on the agenda of research. The Center encourages the activities of the professional schools, and provides a forum for university-wide communication and collaboration. Each of the faculties has begun its own courses and centers, and has developed its own group of scholars specializing in ethics. More than twenty fellows of the Center have gone on to hold teaching appointments at Harvard.
