Drew Faust Named 28th President of Harvard

I grew up at a time when men's and women's lives were also very rigidly defined and differently defined in ways that they no longer are today...If I drew all my cues from what I learned as a young person, I would be completely incompetent to deal with the world in which I found myself as an adult. -Drew Faust

Drew G. Faust, an eminent historian and outstanding academic leader who has served since 2001 as the founding dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, will become the twenty-eighth president of Harvard University, effective July 1.

In September of 2006, Faust spoke on a panel entitled "Defining Success" that was part of a week-long conference sponsored by the Harvard-Radcliffe Women's Leadership Project. eClips partnered with the Project to capture the content and include it in our extensive collection.
