As the Senior Advisor to the President on Harvard's Global Strategy, I have been working with my colleagues on a new initiative to enhance the University's global engagement. I am happy to report that these efforts led to the recent announcement on the creation of the Harvard Global Institute: http://www.harvard.edu/president/news/2015/statement-on-harvard-global-institute
. The new Institute will allow Harvard to mobilize its faculty and students to address pressing global challenges of our times. In this spirit, the Institute will support an ambitious cross-disciplinary initiative to address climate change and air pollution in China.
