Dr. Lynne Opperman

Dr. Lynne Opperman, director of technology development and associate professor in biomedical sciences, was selected to attend the Management Development Program at Harvard University June 14-28.

This course is offered through the Harvard Graduate School of Education Programs in Professional Education. The program’s goal is to prepare participants to become better leaders in their institutions and teach them to lead in ways that support institutional objectives. The topics covered include fostering innovation and change, diversity and community, and professional renewal.

In her role as director of technology development at HSC-BCD, Opperman will benefit from the interaction with both the Harvard faculty and the participants, who come from a broad spectrum of higher education institutions and job responsibilities.  

Dr. Rena D'Souza, professor and chair of biomedical sciences, believes Opperman is ideal for this program, based on her willingness and desire to take on leadership roles in the department, HSC-BCD and the HSC.  

“Lynne will contribute valuable insights in group discussions and will be enriched with the new knowledge she gains through this experience,” says D’Souza.  “Importantly, she will become a program alumnus who will bring much distinction to the program.”
