Overview

Harvard University was founded in 1640 by an act under the laws of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay as an institution of higher learning. The President & Fellows of Harvard College were directed to build a college for the preservation of knowledge and to further the education of those interested in the ministry. The University today is one of the most famous and prestigious in the world offering a wide variety of graduate and under graduate courses, ranging from the liberal arts to the sciences, medicine, law and politics. Mr. Lawrence Summers is the President of the University. All problems which have not been resolved by the appropriate division, college or department may be directed to his office in writing. Complaints should be directed to Mr. Joe Wrinn, Director of News and Public Affairs, 1350 Massachusetts Avenue, Holyoke Center Room 1060, to be forwarded to the appropriate department at Harvard University.
