The Outreach Center draws on the Harvard community to promote a critical understanding of the diversity of the Middle East region for educators and the general public through professional development programs, online resources, and public events.
The Outreach Center fulfills the Center for Middle Eastern Studies' mandate as a U.S. Department of Education National Resource Center to serve as a conduit for scholarship to local and regional primary and secondary school instructors and to the general public. The Outreach Center accomplishes this mission by offering webinars, workshops, public events, and talks to schools and teachers in the Boston region and throughout New England. The Outreach Center also operates a library that teachers throughout the region can use to locate resources pertaining to the Middle East region. Learn more about borrowing policies for the library.
