Responding to President Drew Gilpin Faust's call to service, Eric '88 and Stacey Mindich endowed the Mindich Program for Engaged Scholarship, to provide the infrastructure to link public service activities directly to the curriculum and expand the options for undergraduate courses with public service components. Additionally, funding was made available through the Mindich Service Fellowships for undergraduates to participating summer service opportunities with public service organizations working with the Center for Public Interest Careers. 

"Service to society is at the heart of Harvard's mission. The Mindich family's generosity will encourage and enable more of our students to explore public service in both summer activities and academic work, and to understand the importance of public service in shaping the kind of world we hope to build."
