Welcome Letter from the Faculty Director, Jeffrey Klug

Let me be the first to congratulate you on your admittance to the 2017 Career Discovery Program at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Each year, we look forward to the rich diversity of experiences that each Career Discovery participant brings to the program, and welcome you to be a part of that process. For the last ten years, I have served as the Faculty Director of the program, and each summer I find myself inspired by the evolution of talent and abilities in each student. The levels of discussion, speculation, and conviction by the group as a whole provide the entire Career Discovery community of students, faculty, and staff with a greater clarity about the power that the design discipline can offer both individuals and society. This coming summer, I hope you will join us and be a part of this transformative experience.

Again, congratulations on behalf of the Career Discovery faculty and staff. We look forward to seeing you this June as part of Career Discovery 2017!
