Preserve HKS

We are alumni from around the world who believe Professor Jarding has taught us the skills we need to be leaders in the public sector.

We are more than 100 concerned students who signed a petition to keep Professor Jarding at HKS.

We are the students who saved all of our bid points for one course with Professor Jarding.

We are the hundreds of students who still want to enroll in a class with Professor Jarding.

Dean Elmendorf is terminating Professor Steve Jarding despite:

1.) 2017 Lecturer Review Committee’s gave Professor Jarding a glowing review and actually recommended a promotion (see for more information).

2.) Professor Jarding’s courses are oversubscribed and are regularly the most popular and highly reviewed at the Harvard Kennedy School. Students rave about the class years afterwards. See student testimonials here: Read course evaluations here:

3.) Students and alumni want Professor Jarding to stay! More than 100 students have already signed a petition to keep Professor Jarding at HKS and the number is only growing.

Help us afford t-shirts and buttons and posters, and show your support by wearing them on campus.
