Stephanie Mitchell/Harvard Staff Photographercenter_img Each day, members of the Harvard community interact with students, teachers, and families across Boston. For example, Harvard students serve as tutors in after-school programs, faculty members offer lectures to community groups, and schools offer mentored research opportunities to talented students. These connections benefit the communities on both sides of the Charles — enriching lives, forming lasting bonds, opening minds, and expanding opportunities.This work is a key extension of the public service ethic called for in Harvard’s charter, and the University takes great pride in its longstanding partnerships with communities in Boston. 35President Faust greets a student at the Harvard Allston Education Portal.

Jim Parsons on Headlining Broadway’s An Act of God

first_img Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on Aug. 2, 2015 God is ready to take center stage! Well, Jim Parsons is ready to give up his body for God to take over center stage. Or something. The Emmy winner (Parsons, not God—does God have an Emmy?) stopped by The Tonight Show on March 16 to chat with Jimmy Fallon about his new, sacred role in Broadway’s upcoming An Act of God. “I get to say all this stuff about religion and God, but it’s not me,” he explains. “It’s just my body! It’s an exorcism!” We can’t stress this enough—it’s the Almighty on stage, not Parsons, so he just asks that you don’t yell “Bazinga” at him during the show. An Act of God begins performances at Studio 54 on May 5. View Comments An Act of Godlast_img read more
