Letter to the HBS Dean Search Committee, from current students
Dear Fellow HBS Students, have a say in who the next Dean is by adding your name below.

Our goal is that this letter will be the start of a strong and constructive dialogue between the new Dean and students!

-------

To the HBS Dean Search Committee:

We represent over 270 students from more than 45 countries across the world. Before arriving at HBS, we've come from jobs in private equity, high technology, the United States military, philanthropic foundations, consulting, human rights organizations, banking, government, venture capital, start-ups, NGOs, media & sports companies, workers’ cooperatives, utilities, oil & gas and other industries.

While we believe strongly that capitalism and markets have been powerful engines of prosperity, we also believe there are structural blindspots that require our attention. Simply put, the imminent threat of climate change, the widening wealth gap and the erosion of democratic institutions necessitate a different orientation towards our stakeholders.

We have been encouraged by the steps that HBS has been taking in adapting the required curriculum to further these conversations. But the reason we are writing to you today is that these efforts risk being diluted if the new Dean does not continue to champion this cause. We hope that the new Dean ensures that our learning model is grounded in the discussion of the structural adaptations required of capitalism.

We therefore ask that the incoming Dean:

1) Values and builds trust across a spectrum of diverse stakeholders -- including employees, labor unions, local communities, governments and shareholders
2) Takes the challenge of revamping the curriculum to reflect environmental and societal challenges seriously
3) Has a sustained track record of challenging orthodoxy, especially and even when it is uncomfortable

If Harvard is to remain competitive in the 21st century and continue to attract both student and faculty talent, we strongly believe a Dean that holds the aforementioned truths to be self-evident will be the best positioned to lead HBS.
