Work-Life, Benefits, and Perks

    Harvard University is committed to providing effective policies, benefits, and services to help faculty achieve their career goals while meeting their family responsibilities. Faculty "quality of life" -- or how faculty across the University experience their workload, professional climate, opportunities, ability to manage work and personal responsibilities, and overall connection with the Harvard environment -- greatly impacts career success. The Office of Faculty Development & Diversity works closely with the Vice President of Human Resources to ensure that faculty and staff benefit from our work-life policies and programs.

    Faculty Benefits Information

    In addition to the University-wide Human Resources site, each school has its own local Human Resources site. These may be accessed through the Harvard Intranet or HARVie. To access HARVie you must have a Harvard identification number and PIN. You will also need to access HARVie to register for health and dental insurance and take full advantage of many of Harvard's benefits programs. If you are in the process of becoming a new faculty member at Harvard you may obtain your Harvard identification number after your appointment paperwork is complete.

    The Faculty Self-Service section of the FD&D website provides links to the Harvard University ID Office and to the Harvard ID PIN creation page.
