When it first opened in 1636, Harvard was made up of nine students and one master. Since then, the oldest institute of higher education in the United States has expanded into 12 different, internationally known, degree-granting schools.
Each school focuses on its own realm of academia and is also dedicated to public service. For example, the students in Harvard Law School must complete 40 hours of pro bono before graduating.
Additionally, Harvard Business School supports the Social Enterprise Initiative, a program which “applies innovative business practices and managerial disciplines to drive sustained, high-impact social change.”
