Launched in 2012, the Public Interested Conference provides opportunities for Harvard undergraduates to engage with and learn from alumni serving in and passionate about various public interest fields. The conference will offer opportunities to make connections with students and alumni, discuss social issues, and help students explore public service careers, and will feature a keynote conversation with John King AB ’96, SUNY Chancellor, former U.S. Secretary of Education, and New York State Education Commissioner. Additionally, five other alumni will share their Big Public Service Ideas.
