Dean, Division of Continuing Education & University Extension
I run Harvard's division of continuing education and their extension school.
Day to Day
As the Dean of Harvard's Continuing Education and Extension School, no day is the same. Essentially, it is the access branch of Harvard. We offer undergraduate, graduate, and non-credit programs. We experiment with different forms of innovation like testing new pedagogies and methods of learning. I am responsible for the welfare of over 30,000 students in over 150 countries and managing 600+ online classes.
Advice for Getting Started
Here's the first step for college students
If there is something that truly makes you happy, go for it because there are plenty of jobs out there that will make you unhappy. If what you are doing isn't making the world better for someone else, go find something else to do.
