At Harris, we believe strong leadership is as inclusive as it is ambitious.

The Dean's Office, with input from faculty and staff leadership, sets Harris's direction and strategic priorities. 

Harris Public Policy's three advisory boards provide guidance on new and ongoing initiatives, as well as resource development. Members of both the Harris Council and the Alumni Council are accomplished professionals with substantial experience in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors. Harris' Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Board comprises representatives from Harris's students, alumni, faculty, and staff who have exemplified leadership in their commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion at Harris and in the policy arena.
