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.

2020-2021 HLC Season of Giving Continues

The upcoming holiday season prompts us to pause and reflect on the people in our lives and on the experiences for which we are most grateful.

Now more than ever, it is important to show kindness and give back to our community.  With this in mind, we invite you to extend your appreciation to those within our Harvard Longwood Campus (HLC) community, our Boston neighbors, and beyond by participating in our 9th annual Season of Giving through January 31, 2021!  Visit the HLC Season of Giving website for more details on ways you can offer support during this difficult time.
