MAYOR COWEN SELECTED TO PARTICIPATE IN HARVARD UNIVERSITY'S PROGRAM FOR NEW MAYORS

Mayor Cowen (1)

Brownsville Mayor John Cowen Jr. is among 27 newly elected U.S. mayors selected to participate in the Bloomberg Center for Cities at Harvard University’s Program for New Mayors: First 100 Days, delivered in collaboration with Bloomberg Philanthropies, the U.S. Conference of Mayors, and the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School,

Mayors will receive world-class training from Harvard faculty, urban innovation and management experts, and other mayors on how to select strategic citywide priorities, build effective city hall organizations, and deliver for residents, according to a news release from the Bloomberg Center for Cities at Harvard University.

As cities find themselves on the frontlines of addressing increasingly global challenges, the Bloomberg Center for Cities at Harvard’s Program for New Mayors is designed to help new mayors make the most of their roles. Through the program, mayors gain strategic insights for strengthening critical leadership and management skills, leading teams to work across departments and sectors, and building out their city hall organizations in their first days and months in office, the news release states.

To kick off participation, the newly-elected U.S. mayors will convene for a two-day immersive classroom experience at Harvard University. In addition to the core coursework and connection with peers, the Program for New Mayors provides opportunities for new mayors to share strategies with other mayors through the Bloomberg Center for Cities’ vast mayoral leadership network, and learn about interventions that are already working effectively to better resident lives in other cities.
