The HSPH Department of Information Technology offers congratulations to the two new Harvard graduates on our staff.

After three years of hard work, Amy Cohen, Manager of Instructional Computing, has graduated from Harvard ‘s Graduate School of Education with an Master of Education (Ed.M) degree.  Her specialized degree program focused on curriculum development for adults learning statistics and data analysis.

Also after three years of hard work, Deane Eastwood, Assistant IT Director, has graduated from Harvard’s Extension School with a Master of Liberal Arts in Extension Studies with a concentration in management and operations.  Coursework included courses in human resources, organizational behavior, finance, accounting, and general management studies.

Amy and Deane wait for the procession to begin into Harvard yard.

Amy and Deane join Fred Sheahan, who graduated in 2009 with a Ed.M in Technology, Innovation, and Education, as IT staff members who have recently taken advantage of Harvard’s tuition assistance program (TAP) to receive their master’s degree.

We are also very pleased that a high percentage of IT staff members are currently taking advantage of TAP and are enrolled in courses for both professional and personal development.
