The Citizen is the student-run newspaper for the Harvard Kennedy School community. Its mission is to provide a platform for HKS students and faculty to publish short news and opinion pieces on topical and engaging events both on- and off-campus. In addition to this website, we also have a biannual printed newspaper.

The Citizen values authenticity and preserves the independent voice in each piece of writing. Our editors provide copy editing, but never correct content or ideas.

Everyone is welcome to submit and get involved! We look forward to letting your voice be heard in our school and beyond.

For any inquiries, please email thecitizen@hks.harvard.edu.
