    Founded in 1636 by vote of the Great and General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Harvard University was named after its first benefactor, John Harvard of Charlestown, a young minister who left his library and half of his estate after his death in 1638 the new institution. Harvard's first scholarship fund was founded in 1643 with a gift from Ann Radcliffe, Lady Mowlson.

    In the early years the college offered a classic academic course based on the English university model but in keeping with the predominant Puritan philosophy of the early colonists. Although many of its early graduates became ministers in Puritan communities across New England, the college was never officially affiliated with any particular religious denomination. An early pamphlet published in 1643 established the college's existence: "To advance learning and continue it for posterity; fear of leaving an illiteracy ministry to the churches."

    Harvard University, which celebrated its 350th anniversary in 1986, is the oldest college in the United States. Founded 16 years after the pilgrims arrived in Plymouth, the university has grown from nine undergraduate students with a single Masters to more than 18,000 candidates, including undergraduate and graduate students in 10 major academic units. Another 13,000 students take one or more courses at Harvard Extension School. Over 14,000 people work at Harvard, including more than 2,000 faculties. There are also 7,000 faculty appointments at affiliated teaching hospitals.

    Seven presidents of the United States who graduated from Harvard - John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Theodore and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Rutherford B. Hayes, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and George W. Bush - have graduated from Harvard. The main president I like who graduated from Harvard University is President Barack Obama.

    Funding Harvard University's $ 25.9 billion endowment fund as of fiscal 2005 is a collection of more than 10,800 separate funds established over the years to provide scholarships to libraries, museums, and other collections to maintain and support teaching and research activities; and ongoing support for a variety of other activities. The vast majority of these funds have some limitation. Although their specific uses vary widely, all Harvard Endowment Funds share a common goal: to support activities not for just a year or even a generation, but forever. Endowment funds naturally require current and future needs to be weighed up.

    Visitors often ask: Who is the typical Harvard student? The answer is that there is no such person. Every student is a unique individual and the student body is incredibly diverse. Harvard men and women represent a range of ethnic groups, religious traditions, and political beliefs. They come from all regions of the United States and from more than 100 other countries. This includes undergraduate and graduate students, continuing education students, and summer school students. They range from teenagers to octogenarians; In 1997, Mary Fasano became the oldest person to ever earn a Harvard degree when she graduated from Extension School at the age of 89. Harvard College students come from a remarkable range of backgrounds, as well as academic and extracurricular interests. Two-thirds come from public schools and about two-thirds receive financial support.

    AT HARVARD, STUDENT SAFETY IS ALWAYS FIRST. HARVARD IS ONE OF THE ONLY UNIVERSITIES WITH ITS OWN POLICE. The mission of the Harvard University Police Department is to ensure the peace, safety and quality of life of the community. The HUPD pursues this mission in the context of university freedom, rigorous inquiry, great diversity and the pursuit of distinction. The HUPD honors these traditions and strives for success with moral, constitutional and respectful individual rights and community interests. HUPD officers commit themselves personally and professionally to the values ​​of the department. They seek the same distinction in policing that the university pursues in research and teaching, thereby contributing to the excellence of Harvard University.

    Harvard offers salaries that are competitive with employers in the Boston area. Combined with our generous benefits, perks and the time that pays off, many job seekers are surprised to find an overall reward package that matches or exceeds their current situation. In addition to being externally competitive, Harvard ensures that salaries are calibrated internally through grading.The salary ranges in the table below reflect the base salaries paid for all positions in a given grade at the university. As a rule, a new employee can expect a starting salary in the lower end of the range. This amount depends on the position and relevant experience of the applicant. If you work at Harvard you can start at $ 25,000 and it grows every year until you can make $ 200,000 a year in about 12 years

Foundation of the university

Harvard was founded by the Massachusetts legislature in 1636 and was soon named after John Harvard (his first benefactor). Harvard is the "oldest college in the United States," and Harvard Corporation (officially President and Fellows of Harvard College) is its first chartered corporation. Although the early college was never officially affiliated with a denomination, it mainly trained congregational and unitary clergy. Its curriculum and student body were gradually secularized by the 18th century, and by the 19th century Harvard had become the central cultural establishment among the Boston elite.
