  • Develop and maintain clear and effective HR policies, processes, and practices.
  • Deliver high quality HR programs and services, guided by relevant metrics, that respond to FAS changing needs and challenges.
  • Provide guidance to enable FAS staff to contribute their best efforts to advance the academic mission of FAS and of Harvard overall.
