Some changes are afoot at Harvard! This summer, the Freshman Dean’s Office - the office that held FOP since our inception - was merged with other student affairs offices to create the Dean of Students Office (DSO). Within the DSO we created the Experiential Learning Center, which has the mission of facilitating personally transformative experiences for as many students as possible. FOP will be a signature program of the new Center, which will also include other outdoor educational opportunities as well as other, reflection-oriented programming.
The creation of the Experiential Learning Center means we are now looking for a new director! We welcome feedback from our community members, so, if you have thoughts about what we should look for in the new director, please tell us!
