• 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.
  • Institute for Qualitative Social Science at Harvard University (IQSS)

    We aim to move the social sciences from thinking about the greatest problems affecting human societies to understanding and solving them. IQSS builds cutting edge social science infrastructure, fosters a flourishing community of social scientists, and does whatever it can to help students, faculty, and staff leverage each other's advances and take us all to the next level. We even apply the tools of social science (big data, bigger analytics, novel theories, and behavioral science) to improve the administrative operations of our own Institute and the Harvard administration more generally; see our unusually transparent metrics on Institute performance, detailed roadmaps of where we've been and where we're going, and some of our products used very widely across the university and the world.
