Okediji, Nigerian, Becomes Vice President for Academic Affairs at Harvard University


The Nigerian scholar, Enitan Okediji, has emerged as the Vice President for Academic Affairs at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Boston, United States. The York University graduate announced this on her Twitter page on Monday. As Vice President for Academic Affairs, Okediji will represent the “student voices and issues” for the management of the school.

She wrote, “Life really begins at the end of your comfort zone. It’s not normal to put myself in the arena, but since I’ve entered that space, I’ve realized how important it is for a person of color to reserve space for others and ensure that their voices fill the room through my room. I consider it a great honor and a call to service to be elected to the position of Vice President for Academic Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. Grateful for the trust and confidence in representing students’ voices and issues for HKS management.”
