President’s student office hours

President Bacow will hold office hours for students on:

  • February 12, 2020, 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. 
  • April 14, 2020, 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Sign-up for office hours will take place from 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the Information Desk located in the Welcome Area of the Smith Campus Center on the day before the scheduled office hours. Any students attending the office hours must have a valid and current Harvard University student ID and are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis.

President Bacow’s office hours give both students and the president an opportunity to meet and discuss a wide variety of subjects affecting them and the University. These sessions are not intended as an opportunity for student groups to request endorsement letters or funding. Students with such projects in mind should consider approaching the dean of students for their particular School instead.

In Harvard College, the Common Grant Application, devised with the Undergraduate Council, offers 10 sources of on-campus funding for student organizations. Students in the College can access the Common Grant Application online.
