We believe that Harvard students have a unique role to play in education innovation – both at Harvard and beyond. Our goal with this initiative is to lower the bar to entry for students who have new ideas related to teaching, learning, and education innovation broadly. Whether you are trying to start a new student organization on campus or trying to launch a venture in the free market, we aim to help students from all schools and from all levels navigate the breadth of resources on campus, meet other students who are interested in similar issues, get support, and – most importantly – get started.
