Cambridge, MA: The Center for Public Leadership (CPL) at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) is pleased to announce the appointment of eight Hauser Leaders for the spring 2020 semester.

“These experienced leaders—from the U.S. and around the globe—bring wisdom grounded in years of changemaking and working across difference. This perspective will be immensely valuable to our students, many of whom are beginning their careers as public servants during a particularly complex and volatile time,” said Amb. Wendy R. Sherman, director of the Center for Public Leadership and a professor of the practice at Harvard Kennedy School.

Standing at the heart of the Center for Public Leadership’s community of scholarship and learning, Hauser Leaders contribute in vital ways to the academic life of Harvard, participating in faculty-led research and case development, classroom lectures, and in some cases, independent study and research. Hauser Leaders bring tangible learning to students through workshops, field experiences, coaching meetings, and public events.
