PBHA's Robert Coles 'Call of Service' and Alumni Weekend


Friday, November 1st









PBHA's 13th Annual Robert Coles "Call of Service" Lecture & Award Honoring Cristina Jimenez, Executive Director & Co-Founder of United We Dream

In 2007 PBHA established a lecture and award that brings a significant figure in public service to campus each year to engender a commitment to service and draw attention to important social issues. The only award at Harvard focused on public service, this award is named in honor of Dr. Robert Coles: former PBHA volunteer and Board Member, child psychologist, civil rights activist, longtime Harvard Professor and Pulitzer Prize winning author. His book, "The Call of Service," examines the idealistic spirit PBHA seeks to foster in our students and serves as a most fitting title for this annual lecture and award.

Cristina Jiménez Moreta is the co-founder and Executive Director of United We Dream (UWD), the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the country, spanning 400,000 members and over 100 affiliates in 28 states. She has worked extensively as an advocate for LGBTQ, youth, education, and immigrant rights as well as championed UWD’s successful push for the creation and implementation of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in 2012.

Ms. Jiménez also notably co-founded the New York State Youth Leadership Council and the Dream Mentorship Program at Queens College, in addition to working as a policy analyst at the Drum Major Institute for Public Policy and an immigrant rights organizer at Make the Road New York. She was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2017 and has received numerous awards, including Forbes’ “30 Under 30 in Law and Policy” and a spot on the 2018 TIME 100 List.
