Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative Meet and Greet: Student Research and Fellowship Opportunities


Monday, September 24, 2018, 4:30pm to 7:00pm


Ash Center Foyer, 124 Mount Auburn St., Floor 2, Suite 200N

Join us for a meet and greet with the faculty and staff of the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative, a joint program of Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School, housed at the Ash Center, to learn about ways to participate in this exciting university-wide program, whose objectives are to inspire and strengthen city leaders and equip them with the tools to lead high performing, innovative cities.

As a part of the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative, Harvard faculty, students, and Initiative staff work with mayors and other senior city leaders in the classroom, online, and in the field. The Initiative also aims to identify and fill gaps in research on city leadership, and to create new curricular materials for leadership development. 

The Initiative is seeking talented students interested in making a difference in local governments for the following student opportunities:

  • Research Assistants – Projects for Cities, who will perform research to help mayors and senior leaders make progress on a range of organizational challenges by learning from practices instituted by other cities and the innovative ways they addressed similar challenges
  • Research Assistants – Curriculum Development, who will work with the Initiative’s content team on projects to support the development of curriculum and cases
  • Research Assistants – General, who will work on various short-term projects to support the Initiative and its cities on an as-needed basis
  • Summer Fellows, who will complete 10-week Summer Fellowships in city governments across the country on an issue of salience to the mayor’s agenda


Interested students can learn more about these opportunities at the Meet & Greet event. Students that are unable to attend can contact the Initiative .
