The my.harvard team is gearing up for another exciting fall term. This year, in addition to supporting FAS and HDS fall start-up activities, we will also go live with Harvard Chan School, GSD, GSE, and HKS over the coming two months.

Last month, course data for all Wave 2 schools (Harvard Chan, HGSE, HGSD, and HKS) were successfully converted into an administrative production space - a major milestone toward the release of the course catalog to students, faculty, staff, and the public in June 2016! The completion of this milestone means that administrators at all Wave 2 schools are now able to work behind the scenes in my.harvard to build next year’s course catalog.
