The history of the Institute of Politics at Harvard University

At the Institute of Politics, a living memorial to President Kennedy, we work to celebrate the President's legacy of public service every day. The Institute is showcasing how our students honor this legacy throughout all of our work to promote politics and public service careers. The IOP is using the hashtag "EveryDayJFK" to highlight this work on Institute social media channels. We encourage those who would like to participate to use the "#EveryDayJFK" hashtag on social media, take photos and videos and show us how you are honoring the President's legacy today.

A Day In The Life of Harvard Kennedy School

This film was shot entirely on one day, September 27, 2012. It's not quite fair to say that it was a typical day. Two visiting heads of state, one Nobel Peace Prize winner, and two packed Forums in one evening are not the norm. But 54 classes and seminars and half a dozen brown bags, workshops, and special lectures is not unusual. Nor are limousines, Secret Service agents, camera crews and live feeds from the television studio, a flood of spectators and the bullhorns of protesters, or the quiet efficiency with which staff members make it all possible.

From the show of April 21, 2000, Steve writes:

Thirty years ago, when the first Earth Day rallies got underway, I was slow to get in line. As an African-American I was busy marching about civil rights and fighting poverty. As the son of a single mother, I was busy marching for equal rights for women. As a concerned citizen and Quaker, I was busy marching against the war in Vietnam. Let the white guys march for the environment, I said. Let them rally to keep open space so they can ride to hounds, while I work for a better world.

But over the next 20 years things changed, and I changed, too. As a society, we made a lot of progress on many of the problems of 1970. Poverty and racism didn't disappear, but far more African-Americans and other minorities won more good jobs and acceptance. There is now a national holiday for Martin Luther King, Jr. Women started to close the pay gap with men. Many run companies, serve in government, and enjoy more protection from gender discrimination. And while it still haunts our memories, the Vietnam War ended and we learned important lessons.

Meanwhile, I became a journalist and a parent. By Earth Day 1990, my own young son was telling me that environmental change was the most important, under-covered story going. And I realized that he was right. Of all the issues Americans marched about in 1970, only the environment has gotten worse. Population has almost doubled since the first Earth Day. Species are going extinct faster and faster. Open space and wilderness are disappearing. Evidence is mounting that pollution not only causes cancer but a host of other disorders, including asthma, heart attacks, immune system breakdowns, reproductive problems, and even criminal behavior.

Pollution is also changing the climate in ways that scientists could barely imagine back in 1970. In short, life as we know and love it is changing profoundly. Living on Earth doesn't advocate any particular point of view, except that our relationship to our environment, and what we do to it, is as important as any other part of our lives. And it's our job to bring you the information you need to make the choices that will determine our future.
