With folksy emails and an open door policy, Donald H. Pfister restored trust in a College community rife with controversy and set the stage for its next permanent chapter.
The move comes just days after student leaders from the black and Latino communities came together to host a town hall to discuss race relations at Harvard.
Faculty members will discuss a proposed student honor code, the passage of which would require students to make an affirmation of integrity, at their monthly meeting Tuesday.
When Cabot House Co-Master Rakesh Khurana becomes the College’s top administrator on July 1, he will be at the helm of both the Quad House he calls home and Harvard’s flagship school.

Cabot House Co-Master Rakesh Khurana will be spending more time in University Hall next fall after he takes the helm of Harvard College, but he and Co-Master Stephanie R. Khurana said that they will run the Quad House much the same as they have for the last three years.
College students and Cabot House residents in particular expressed enthusiasm, support, and optimism for Rakesh Khurana after the Cabot co-master was named the next dean of Harvard College.
The incoming dean will bring leadership expertise from Harvard Business School and insider experience of House life to one of the University’s highest offices, colleagues and students say.
Khurana will succeed current Interim Dean Donald H. Pfister, who took the helm of the College in July after Evelynn M. Hammonds stepped down.
