Harvard Names Alan Garber of Stanford as Its Next Provost

April 15 (Bloomberg) -- Harvard University named Alan Garber, a Stanford University professor of medicine and economics, as its next provost, replacing Steven Hyman.

Garber, who graduated from Harvard College in 1976, will take the post on Sept. 1, President Drew Faust said today in a statement on the university’s website. Hyman announced in December he would step down at the end of the academic year.

Garber will work with Faust to define Harvard’s “academic vision,” according to the statement. He will also help carry out Faust’s objective to integrate research and teaching programs across the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based university’s schools and institutes.

“Harvard has a storied history and a present full of remarkable accomplishments and extraordinary strengths,” Garber said in the statement. “I look forward to helping the university achieve its enormous promise for the future.”

Garber, Stanford’s Henry J. Kaiser Jr. Professor, served as founding director of the university’s Center for Health Policy and its Center for Primary Care and Outcomes Research. His research focuses on health-care delivery and financing, according to the statement. Stanford is located near Palo Alto, California.
