OUR TEAM

The DKP team, an initiative based at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University, includes faculty, research associates, staff, post-doctoral fellows, and students with a wide range of skills, experiences and perspectives that make our work possible. Our team has expertise in political theory, American History, K-12 social studies, history and civics curriculum development and pedagogies, social psychology, assessment, student-led civics projects, professional development, and project management. The DKP is part of a consortium of ethics and civic education initiatives at Harvard called the Design Studio at the EJSCE.
The Design Studio is led by Dr. Meira Levinson, faculty member at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and EJSCE faculty committee member.
