Harvard’s Administrative Nightmare

I understand many new policies are well-intentioned, especially with regards to the student experience. But we all know where good intentions lead, and I wouldn’t say many new policies meant to improve student life have been all that successful.

Be critical in a grateful way. By this I mean eliciting change from a place of love — love of learning, love of school, and love of each other.

Closed Open-Mindedness

Students here should be amenable to considering the political beliefs of others, even if entirely opposite their own, or in the direction of conservatism.

Rethinking Computer Science at Harvard

For more and more students in the Computer Science and related departments, I hope that considerations of ethical and social use of the technologies taught will also be one such consideration.

What’s In A Name?
