The mission of the Office for Student Affairs (OSA) is to support and enrich the student experience at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health through a wide range of educational, cultural, and social programming. The office works to help ensure the general well-being of the student body and to support students who are experiencing challenges or difficulties. OSA plans both orientation and graduation programs and events. The office assists students with disabilities, provides specialized programming and support for our diverse student population, assists with housing and residence life issues, works closely with officers of the Student Association, and advises and provides support to student organizations on a variety of issues, including goal setting and event planning. In addition, OSA administers the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s Semester Pass, a discount subway pass program; assigns lockers; and serves as an information source for students.
