 Expanding Opportunities for Undergraduate Education

As a partner in the educational mission of Harvard University, the Arboretum leverages its resources to support undergraduate education. Arboretum-based faculty and researchers, state-of-the-art laboratories, and the living collections provide field experiences for diverse Harvard classes ranging from the biology of plants and urban ecology to landscape design. A summer short course connects students with global experts in plant morphology, while a 10-week internship program beginning in May mentors students in conducting botanical and environmental research. Weekly lectures at Weld Hill offer learning and networking opportunities for students, reaching those on campus and around the world by live stream. more »
