Open to All

Everyone has the opportunity to earn credit in rigorous, Harvard-quality courses.

Education is about being vulnerable. It’s about being unsettled, unnerved, unhoused – being open to that which you are not used to. To have to de-familiarize yourself to ways of being in the world – Harvard Extension is magnificent in that regard."

Dr. Cornel West | Professor of the Practice of Public Philosophy | Harvard Divinity School

We envisioned online learning that fostered connection without sacrificing flexibility, then developed technology solutions to make it real.
