Harvard Crimson Discusses the Initial Response to the Public Service Initiative

The Harvard Crimson, Harvard’s daily since 1873, discussed the initial sign-up for the PSI in a recent article. The initial sign-ups for the PSI suggest the program will have a much greater rate of participation than imagined—about 50% above the targeted number.
“On the one hand, it’s a little bit scary, but on the other hand, it’s very exciting for me,” Dean Elena Kagan commented in the article.
Kagan has made a commitment to funding the program at least through its five-year experimental phase, regardless of the number of students who sign up. “I’m hopeful it’ll work really well, and that we’ll find whatever extra money we’ll need for it.”
