Harvard University's Administrative Fellowship Program seeks to attract more ethnic minorities to administrative
careers in higher education. To this end, the Administrative Fellowship Program offers a twelve-month management
experience complemented by a professional development program.
The Program provides participants with opportunities to broaden their experience through working in an academic
environment as a mid-level administrator. The Program seeks to enrich and diversify the Harvard community by bringing
talented professionals to Cambridge.
The Program will draw Fellows from business, government, education, and the professions. Each participant will
receive a salary from Harvard University. All costs for the required educational seminar will be covered by Harvard
University. Participants must secure and cover the cost of their housing.
The 2000-2001 Program will begin in September. The Fellows will be placed in various schools and departments throughout
the University, including the Harvard University Native American Program. Reflecting the academic and administrative
diversity of the Harvard community, assignments for each Fellow will differ. However, individual fellowship needs
will be shaped by considering both the school's or department's needs and the participant's career experience.
Fellows are strongly urged to obtain leaves of absence from their current jobs. While the University will make
every effort to place successful participants, there is no guarantee of permanent Harvard employment upon completion
of the Program.
Fellows will participate in a seminar series in addition to a full-time work assignment. Seminars, lectures, and
case studies have been designed to enhance management and administrative skills and to assist in self-assessment
and development. The overall goal of the education program is to encourage Fellows to assess their own career development
and to generate strategies for advancement.
