HDS Voices

John C. Whitehead
I came to Harvard to earn my MBA and was later drawn to HDS, through my devotion to Harvard’s broader agenda to serve society. I’ve supported the School ever since, and consider it to be one of my wisest investments. Whether building a company or performing relief work overseas, our young people serve and achieve more effectively with the kind of training in ethics and interfaith relations that HDS offers.
