Next Gen Mission

As part of the Culture Lab Innovation Fund’s 2020 cohort, the Next Gen Initiative utilizes technology to align, consolidate, and enhance institutional support and community building pathways for all Harvard undergraduate and graduate students who are the first in their families to pursue a degree in the U.S and/or are from underresourced or underserved backgrounds.

While there is no universal Next Gen student experience across Harvard, there are shared challenges, needs,and areas of opportunity that can be addressed through the innovative retooling of existing Harvard University resources and services.
