David and the Dean at the Library of Congress
On a mild Spring evening over one hundred HKS alums and friends from the HKS community in DC gathered in the Members' Room at the Library of Congress to witness David Rubenstein lead a fireside chat with HKS Dean Douglas Elmendorf.
The two pillars of the HKS community covered everything from the history of the Library of Congress, the Congressional budget, the role of Dean, the current and future state of the Kennedy School, and the high points and challenges so far of the Dean's time in charge.
This event was coordinated and hosted by Amy Davies, Senior Director of Alumni Relations at HKS, with a fantastic team who made the journey down from Cambridge. The evening was made possible through the generosity of David M. Rubenstein, Co-founder and Co-CEO, The Carlyle Group; Chair, Campaign for Harvard Kennedy School; Co-chair, Harvard Campaign; Fellow, President and Fellows of Harvard College (beginning July 2017).
