A message from the President Of Harvard

Hello, and welcome to Harvard. People make a university great, so whether you are a prospective student, current student, professor, researcher, staff member, graduate, parent, neighbor, or visitor, your interest and enthusiasm are valued and appreciated.

As a historian, I am proud to lead an institution with such a rich and storied past. Harvard began in colonial days with a handful of students, little property and limited power and prestige, but a determined mission: “To advance Learning and perpetuate it to Posterity,” as a 1643 brochure put it.

That bold vision has guided Harvard for the past four centuries and made it the world-leading center of discovery and learning that it is today. It is our collective efforts, however, that today make this university such a vibrant place to live, to learn, to work, and to explore. No matter what your reason for visiting, we’re glad you came and I hope you will make the most of your time here.
