The GSD has recently undergone a period of strategic growth with new programs, formats, and areas of concentration, along with creative collaborations linking to the wider University. This Campaign is tremendously important; it will set the direction and provide the resources for Harvard to realize its dreams for the coming decades. It is a time to dream, to plan, and to succeed!

To further the current undertakings of the world’s pre-eminent school of design will require leadership, commitment, and importantly, financial resources. We will work hard to show you all the opportunities and challenges that the School currently is pursuing. I hope that you will join us in making this campaign an outstanding success. Thank you for your support.
