City leaders are often best positioned to make government more effective, efficient, innovative, and equitable for residents. Working in a city hall provides you with the opportunity to work with a group of dedicated people to help make positive change happen. Read about our current and alumni Fellows and their work.

Check your graduate program’s career services communications for in-person information sessions across the University in late December to early January. Sessions typically take place at HKS, HLS, GSD, HGSE, and other Harvard schools.
