Rakesh Khurana, professor of sociology and organizational behavior at Harvard University, and Faculty Dean of Cabot House, became Dean of Harvard College on July 1, 2014. A distinguished scholar of organizational behavior and leadership, an award-winning teacher, and a Faculty Dean, Rakesh has been deeply involved in undergraduate issues throughout his time at Harvard, having served on a number of important policy committees, including committees on Academic Integrity and Campus Culture.  In 2011-2012, he co-chaired the Committee on Harvard College Alcohol Policy and most recently served on the task force charged with recommending policies related to the privacy of electronic communications conducted at Harvard.

  

Rakesh has also been recognized for his commitment to pedagogy, twice earning the Charles M. Williams Award for Excellence in Teaching (2008, 2012) and being nominated in 2013 for the Star Family Prize for Excellence in Advising. He has also co-edited “The Handbook for Leadership Theory and Practice” (2010) and “The Handbook for Teaching Leadership” (2012), seminal texts on leadership theory and pedagogical practice.

  

Rakesh received his B.S. from Cornell University, and began graduate studies at Harvard in 1993, earning his Ph.D. in 1998 through a joint program between Harvard Business School (HBS) and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS).
