Q&A with Rakesh Khurana

first_imgRakesh Khurana, the Marvin Bower Professor of Leadership Development at Harvard Business School (HBS) and co-master of Cabot House, will become dean of Harvard College on July 1. Khurana has been a member of the Harvard community for 16 years, earning his Ph.D. through a joint program between HBS and Harvard’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences in 1998.Since 2010, he and his wife, Stephanie, have lived as co-masters at Cabot with their three children and 375 undergraduates. Khurana is an award-winning teacher and widely recognized scholar. In a question-and-answer session, he recently spoke about his appointment, the challenges facing the College and higher education in general, and the role of the College dean. GAZETTE: When you were younger, thinking about a career path, did you ever imagine that one day you would be dean of Harvard College?KHURANA: It was not something I had imagined. Like most faculty, my primary focus has been on research, teaching, and service to my department, profession, and the College as co-master of Cabot House.The opportunity to serve as the dean of Harvard College is a great honor, and I am humbled by it. I am excited by the opportunity to work alongside Harvard’s faculty and staff to create a transformative educational experience for our students.GAZETTE: What does it mean to you to be dean of Harvard College?KHURANA: Words cannot capture what I feel in my heart. There is a profound sense of responsibility. But I think the feelings are similar to the ones that Harvard faculty, staff, and students experience every day. It means being a part of a meaningful institution. It means being part of a community devoted to the idea that a liberally educated mind and the pursuit of knowledge are ends in themselves. I believe the role of a dean is to closely listen to our faculty, students, and staff to help develop a collectively shared vision of our future, and then providing them the direction, resources, and support needed to make that vision a reality.GAZETTE: What do you see as some of the challenges facing the College right now?KHURANA: Harvard has played a unique role in the history of higher education by actively shaping its future in response to external challenges. I believe this means our community cannot be complacent or simply wait for things to happen. If our core values about the importance of liberal education and faculty self-governance are to endure, we must articulate them in ways that are resonant with present times and renewed by embracing the best methods for learning and advancing knowledge.GAZETTE: You and your wife, Stephanie, have served as Cabot House masters for about four years. Do you feel being a House master can help prepare a person to be dean of the College, and if so, in what ways?KHURANA: I believe that the perspective and the experience we bring by having the privilege of living with our undergraduate students and tutors at Cabot House gives me a window into our students’ day-to-day experiences and the questions they are trying to answer. As masters, we have a sense of the pressures students feel in making choices about concentrations, navigating Harvard’s social scene, negotiating parental expectations, and exploring who they are and who they are trying to become.In addition, serving as co-master has helped me realize how important it is for students to see themselves as leaders who can shape our House community. When we asked students to find ways to create more vibrant social spaces or to bring arts into House life, our students responded with solutions that we could not have imagined. They created the Cabot Café, a late-night undergraduate coffee house, the Cabot House Theater Company that now organizes eight student productions a year, and the Third Space, an arts studio where students can explore their creative and artistic interests.GAZETTE: Your research focuses on management and leadership. Do you believe elements of your research have helped prepare you for this role?KHURANA: One of the things we teach is that effective institutions are never about one person; rather the most effective institutions are motivated by a collective vision and serve to advance society’s most cherished values. Institutions like Harvard exist and persist not because they are built around a cult of personality, but because they transcend a single individual. Institutions allow us to do something together that none of us could do alone.We also teach that the most effective leaders look to their colleagues for advice, guidance, and honest input. I have had the benefit of working alongside and being mentored by many Harvard colleagues who have served or are serving in administrative leadership roles and whose wisdom, guidance, and feedback I plan to draw upon.GAZETTE: Looking back, what would today’s Rakesh Khurana think about the past’s Rakesh Khurana, the undergraduate?KHURANA: If I could go back to my younger self, and assuming that my younger self would listen, I would tell him not to be so anxious and not to treat every decision as if it was going to determine his destiny. I would tell him that serendipity plays a bigger role in what happens to you than what you plan. I would also tell him not be afraid to ask for help and give thanks to all the people who have nurtured him along the way.last_img read more

3 tips for winning over your harshest critics

first_img 29SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Wendy Moody Wendy Moody is a Senior Editor with Wendy works with the editorial team to help edit the content including current news, press releases, jobs and events. She keeps … Web: Details Let’s face it: we can’t please everyone. If you’re like me, sometimes this is hard to accept. When certain colleagues don’t see your full potential or are skeptical of your abilities, it’s important you not get discouraged, even though that can prove difficult. The next time you face critics at work, consider these three tips for changing their mind and knocking it out of the park.Keep your head downWhen coworkers demonstrate doubt in your ability to perform in your position, the best decision you can make is to lay low and keep your nose to the grindstone. Many critics are only out for themselves, so don’t let them negatively influence you. The most effective way to prove yourself is to stay focused and work toward your goal.Communicate your strengthsWhen someone doubts you when you know for certain you are capable, don’t be afraid to communicate to them why you are sure of yourself. If you’ve been tasked with a project that others think you may not be right for, demonstrate to your colleagues what it is that makes you perfect for the role.Resist the urge to get defensiveRemember it’s not personal, it’s work. That can be hard for some (including myself) to accept. But when others are critical, it doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t appreciate you as a person. Remain calm when your critics express themselves and consider their feedback and look at things from their perspective. You never know; what may seem like negative criticisms may actually end up benefiting you in the end.last_img read more

Japan’s first human case of avian flu was minor

first_imgDec 22, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – Tests have confirmed that a man who worked on a Japanese farm during an outbreak of H5N1 avian influenza last February had Japan’s first human case of avian flu, though he never became seriously ill, officials announced today.The man was tested for the virus twice, and the second test showed an increase in antibodies, confirming infection, according to a report by Agence France-Presse (AFP). Four other people tested positive for antibodies but were tested only once; they were regarded has having had “highly possible” cases, the story said.None of the five developed influenza, although the employee with the confirmed case did report a sore throat for a few days after taking antiviral medication, AFP reported. Four of the people worked at a poultry farm where the avian flu outbreak occurred. The fifth was a local government worker who helped disinfect the farm.The five were not expected to pose a public health problem “as there is no possibility that they will develop such symptoms or infect other people,” according to a government statement quoted by AFP.Health ministry officials took several months to complete diagnosis of the human infection because they used extra care in the face of a lack of established rules for testing for H5N1, the story said.A Japanese government research team said this H5N1 strain was virtually identical to strains found in South Korea, AFP reported. The agriculture ministry today banned poultry imports from South Korea until further notice.The affected employees hadn’t worn protective clothing, according to a story today by the Vietnam News Agency (VNA). That might have been due to attempts to cover up the outbreak, AFP reported.Two people died last March in an apparent double suicide related to the outbreak, AFP said. The chairman of Asada Nosan Co., which owned the affected poultry farm, was found dead, along with his wife. In August, their son was sentenced to a 1-year jail term, which was suspended for 3 years, for failing to report the outbreak.last_img read more

Trump says he is on same page with Fauci, is not firing him

first_imgHe has contradicted or corrected Trump on scientific matters during the public health crisis, including whether the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine is effective against the virus.On Monday, Fauci made a point of saying the president had followed his advice on putting social distancing recommendations in place for the country.”The president listened to the recommendation,” Fauci said. “The first and only time that I went in and said: ‘We should do mitigation strongly,’ the response was, ‘Yes, we’ll do it.'”‘Very complicated’The Republican president in the past has repeated critical tweets of officials or enemies rather than make the criticism himself. The retweet fueled speculation Trump was running out of patience with Fauci and could fire him, prompting a White House denial before Trump’s briefing.White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said Trump’s retweet addressed what he considered a false report on his travel restriction involving China, where the novel coronavirus originated.Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was asked on CNN about a New York Times report documenting early warnings issued to the White House about the novel coronavirus. The scientist acknowledged shutting the country down sooner could have saved lives, but cautioned that a number of factors were involved.”Obviously, it would have been nice if we had a better head start, but I don’t think you could say that we are where we are right now because of one factor,” Fauci said. “It’s very complicated.”Already a target of the far right for his contradictions of Trump, Fauci drew more opprobrium after the interview.Trump also denounced the Times story in tweets on Sunday, calling it “Fake.”Last week during the daily White House coronavirus briefing, Trump stepped in and prevented Fauci from answering a question about hydroxychloroquine.”He won’t fire Fauci today,” tweeted Joe Lockhart, press secretary to former President Bill Clinton, a Democrat. “That’s not his style. He needs to humiliate him a while first.”Fauci, 79, has led the federal infectious disease agency since 1984 under Republican and Democratic presidents. Republican George W. Bush honored him with the presidential Medal of Freedom in 2008.Some opinion polls during the public health crisis have shown Americans trust him more than Trump.  On Sunday, Trump retweeted a call to fire Fauci after the top US expert on infectious diseases said lives could have been saved if the country had shut down sooner during the novel coronavirus outbreak.At the briefing on Monday, Fauci said he was answering a hypothetical question in the interview and made clear that Trump had listened to him when he recommended mitigation efforts.”I like him,” Trump said of Fauci. “I think he’s a wonderful guy.” Trump said he had been on the same page with Fauci from the beginning of the crisis, but added that not everyone was happy with the doctor.Fauci has assumed national prominence – and a degree of popular affection – as a leader in the fight against the coronavirus, which has killed 23,543 people in the United States and infected 583,990, according to a Reuters tally. President Donald Trump said on Monday he liked leading health expert Anthony Fauci and did not intend to fire him after Fauci said in an interview that earlier mitigation efforts against the coronavirus outbreak could have saved more lives.At a sometimes contentious briefing with reporters, Trump said he and Fauci had been on the same page “from the beginning” about the virus and played a video for reporters defending his administration’s response.Trump, who played down the seriousness of the virus in its initial stages, has chafed at media coverage suggesting he did not do enough to prevent its spread.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Eight years after shooting, Nobel-winner Malala graduates

first_img“I don’t know what’s ahead. For now, it will be Netflix, reading and sleep.”The photos show Malala covered in brightly coloured bits of paper and foam — a student tradition — and having a cake with her family, decorated with the words “Happy Graduation Malala”.Malala first rose to prominence aged just 11 with a blog for the BBC’s Urdu-language service charting her life in Swat under the Taliban.She was shot in the head by a Taliban hitman in October 2012, and after being flown to Britain for life-saving medical treatment, the family settled in Birmingham, central England.She was at school there when she heard in 2014 that she had won the Nobel Peace Prize along with Indian activist Kailash Satyarthi “for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.”The youngest ever Nobel laureate, she has continued to speak out for girls’ education. Nobel Prize-winning activist Malala Yousafzai, who moved to Britain after being shot for campaigning for girls’ education in Pakistan, described her joy Friday at graduating from Oxford University.Almost eight years after she was attacked by the Taliban on her school bus in the Swat Valley, the 22-year-old posted photos on Twitter of her celebrations with her family.”Hard to express my joy and gratitude right now as I completed my Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree at Oxford,” she said.  Topics :last_img read more
