Each week the biggest experts in politics and public service come through our doors to engage members of the Harvard community in discussions on to current hot button issues. In order to capture these great minds and be able to share their insights with those not located near 79 JFK street, we began a new video series called “3 with IOP.” We ask our guests three relevant questions on their area of expertise and film their responses to share on YouTube and thus with the greater community. Our mission is to encourage young people to get involved in politics and public service, but we want to encourage everyone to get involved and this is our way of sharing thought leaders with the world.
