The Global Health Education and Learning Incubator at Harvard University inspires and supports innovative learning, teaching, and dialogue about cutting-edge, multidisciplinary global challenges. They foster and evaluate new pedagogical tools and instructional strategies that bridge disciplinary fields, educational spaces, and groups of learners through learning studios for workshops, piloting and testing programs, and the provision of the teaching library.
The women's center provides an interactive workshop called "Gender 101" to different organizations (student and staff), which aims to build awareness of the diversity of gender identities on campus. Additionally they have a Women in STEM program designed to help support and retain women in STEM fields.
The Education Committee reaches beyond advocacy to effect real long term change in educational policy by working side by side with administrators and professors to produce initiatives like the Honor Council and make recommendations to shape the Gen Ed system. In addition to partnering with HBS and the Bok Center on exciting programs, EdCom is open to student feedback and initiatives.
The Foundation sponsors annual programs and activities that are designed to promote diversity, inclusion and equity in the interest of interracial, intercultural and inter-religious understanding and harmony in the Harvard community. They provide funding to most, if not all, of the cultural organizations working on educating peers about their communities/cultures through SAC grants.
The BSC provides academic counseling, tutoring, ESL classes, workshops and discussions on varying topics from faster reading to how to stay organized to students of various Harvard schools. Additionally, they also provide consultation services to student, faculty, and staff on how to improve and develop learning and development strategies.
By supporting experimentation, innovation, and evidence-based practices, the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning seeks to create transformational learning experiences for faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates in Harvard's Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
The OUE focuses on curricular planning, pedagogy, course development, and the implementation of new Faculty-led programs for undergraduates. We also collaborate with departments, faculty, and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences to oversee Instructional Support, including the assignment of Teaching Fellows and Teaching Assistants (TFs and TAs).
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.
"Research Computing was established in 2007 as part of the Faculty of Arts & Sciences (FAS) Division of Science, with the founding principle of facilitating the advancement of complex research by providing leading edge computing services. Research Computing staff maintain expertise in constantly changing computing technologies, while “speaking the language” of FAS researchers, to help them use computing more effectively.
Computational resources are available for high performance and scientific computing, bioinformatic analysis, visualization, and data storage. Research Computing continually expands its services and technologies, ensuring researchers have access to a world-class computational environment.
Through dedicated leadership and enterprising stewardship, Research Computing is committed to developing a large-scale computing infrastructure that helps researchers with the big data challenges of the 21st century."
"Dataverse is an open source web application to share, preserve, cite, explore, and analyze research data. It facilitates making data available to others, and allows you to replicate others' work more easily. Researchers, data authors, publishers, data distributors, and affiliated institutions all receive academic credit and web visibility.
A Dataverse repository is the software installation, which then hosts multiple dataverses. Each dataverse contains datasets, and each dataset contains descriptive metadata and data files (including documentation and code that accompany the data). As an organizing method, dataverses may also contain other dataverses."
Cabot is Harvard's principal general science library. In addition to serving undergraduates, the library has research collections in mathematics, statistics, earth and planetary sciences, psychology and science-related interdisciplinary studies.
The Mineralogical & Geological Museum at Harvard University (MGMH) is committed to the development and preservation of world-class collections of minerals, rocks, ores, meteorites and gems for research, education, and public display. We strive to meet the needs of students and faculty at Harvard University as well the geological community and public at large by serving as a uniquely rich resource of materials and information.
The Harvard University Herbaria include six collections and more than five million specimens of algae, bryophytes, fungi, and vascular plants. Together they form one of the largest university herbarium collections in the world, and the third largest herbarium in the United States. With their state-of-the art research laboratories and world class libraries, the HUH have been a centerpiece of biodiversity science since the early 1800s.
