Gregory R. Anrig Professor of Educational Leadership at the Harvard Graduate School of Education

Richard Elmore, Gregory R. Anrig Professor of Educational Leadership at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, passed away in February 2021. For the past fifteen years his research and clinical practice has concentrated on the improvement of instructional practice in schools and classrooms, and the development of organizational systems to support those improvements. Most recently, he was focused on the fundamental redesign of learning environments, and the development of leaders and entrepreneurs to create and sustain those environments, all in light of dramatic changes in our understanding of the neuroscience of learning and the exponential growth of digital culture. He was founding faculty director of the Doctor of Educational Leadership (EdLD) program at Harvard.
