Fall 2019 Resident Fellows

For over fifty years the Resident Fellows Program has provided students with the opportunity to learn from experienced public servants, the space to engage in civil discourse, and the chance to acquire a more holistic, empathetic, and pragmatic view of our political world. Each semester, Resident Fellows immerse themselves into the Harvard community by residing on campus, mentoring a cohort of undergraduate students, holding weekly office hours and leading an eight-week, not-for-credit study group based on their particular experience and expertise.

Fall 2019 Resident Fellows Include LaTosha Brown, Bob Cohn, Vice President Isabel de Saint Malo de Alvarado, Deesha Dyer, Senator Jeff Flake, and Alice Stewart.
