Office of the ABRD (Your Academic and Resident Dean)

Hello, Pfoho! Brigitte and our Academic Coordinator Abby are here to advise, to help you get the most out of your Harvard experience, and to help you navigate whatever academic or personal issues you may be facing. Brigitte is also your representative to the Administrative Board, which considers petitions for academic exceptions and handles disciplinary issues. Even if you aren’t sure whether the House Dean’s office is the right place to come with your concern or question, please get in touch anyway! We can help connect you with all of the many resources that are here for you at Harvard College, and we’re happy to talk privately about any issue. We also encourage you to come by just to check in and say hi. We’re here for you, and we look forward to getting to know you all!

You can email either Abby ( or Brigitte ( to set up a time to come by. Brigitte will also have drop-in office hours each week, which you can sign up for here. Also, please feel free to pop in any time you see us in the office!
