Harvard Bureau of Study Counsel

Learning can be exhilarating, inspiring, and rewarding. It can also be difficult, disillusioning, and exhausting. Harvard student life calls on you to approach your intellectual and creative work with strategy, skill, and spirit; to make difficult choices about your time and your priorities; to conduct yourself with integrity and honor; to develop a sense of voice and authority in your scholarship, relationships, and leadership; to work well and play well with others; to discover what leaves you feeling enlivened and engaged; and to make meaning of your work and your experiences. The services of the Bureau of Study Counsel (BSC) include academic counseling, workshops and discussions, peer tutoring, the Harvard Course in Reading and Study Strategies, and self-help materials in the BSC’s Cranium Corner and on the website. BSC services are designed to support you in your efforts to learn and grow and engage in the educational opportunities available to you at Harvard. BSC services are grounded in a “whole person” educational/developmental model which recognizes the interrelationships among the intellectual, social, and personal aspects of academic life and learning. Please contact the BSC at 617-495-2581 to speak with a counselor about your request. Bureau of Study Counsel
