The new facility, much larger than the current Harris School, provides an appropriate space for teaching, research, and events for faculty, students, and visiting scholars. Over the past decade, the Harris School has expanded its enrollment while recruiting outstanding students to its increasingly diverse and international student body. Its enhanced curriculum, applied learning and research programs in urban policy, energy policy, and data science have enabled students to keep pace with the fast-shifting policy landscape. Along with the planned growth of the Harris School, the Keller Center accommodates related institutes.
