Launched in 2016, the Mindich Program for Engaged Scholarship is an exciting new initiative focused on integrating academics and community engagement at Harvard College. By creating opportunities for students and faculty to engage with community (broadly defined) through academics, Engaged Scholarship aims to nurture the development of 21st century competencies among students:

  • Habits of mind that can relate education to life and the world
  • Collaboration skills
  • The ability to dialogue across differences, communities, and sectors of civic life
  • Creativity, critical and systems thinking
  • The ability to draw on multiple perspectives, forms of information, and knowledge domains to innovate and problem solve
  • Appreciation for non-academic perspectives, knowledge, and expertise
