Human Resources
Our Commitment of Service to Harvard Chan School Employees

The Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health is more than just a place to work. As an organization, we are a global citizen, committed to advancing health world-wide. That commitment starts here, with our employees’ well-being.

Our community is a diverse one where we embrace and foster an inclusive environment in which all employees are treated equitably regardless of their differences and background.  We celebrate the diverse skills and creative ideas our employees bring to work.

We offer an enriching and supportive community, with abundant programs, services, and tools to help you address challenges and achieve goals at work and in life.  Human Resources’ mission is to be a proactive and strategic partner with the Harvard Chan School community in terms of how to recruit, manage, compensate, reward, develop and engage staff so that we can most effectively support the School’s strategic priorities.
