Ian Lapp, PhD
Dr. Lapp is associate dean for strategic educational initiatives at the Harvard School of Public Health, recruited to lead the school's multi-year educational strategic planning process known as the "Roadmap to 2013," a school-wide effort to mark the centennial of the School in Fall 2013 by charting Harvard's second century in teaching and learning in public health and informing the future direction of higher education in public health. Dr. Lapp also serves as the course director for Foundations in Public Health, Harvard's innovative, case-based approach to teaching core public health knowledge.
Dr. Lapp previously served as associate dean for academic affairs and education at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, where he capped off a ten-year career there by co-leading the redesign of the School's MPH degree, the nation's largest professional master's degree program. During his tenure at Columbia, he played a collaborative leadership role in the redesign of dozens of courses including the core courses, development of a number of degree concentrations including global health, launching of an undergraduate program in public health, designing of e-learning projects and high-tech classrooms, and development of an extensive faculty development program in teaching.
As the Harvard School of Public Health implements its new educational strategy that emerged out of the Roadmap Initiative, Dr. Lapp will continue to work across the School's new and emerging educational initiatives including the redesign of the MPH and the design of a DrPH degree and five-department PhD degree program in Population Health Sciences. He will also lead the School's innovation efforts in technology and interactive learning including edX, e-learning, and simulations. At the University level, he is the inaugural co-chair of Harvard's Teaching and Learning Consortium. At the national level, he has chaired a number of major committees for the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH), is currently a member of the Framing the Future Taskforce, and is frequently invited to speak on issues of educational innovation at schools of public health. Dr. Lapp is currently serving on the national board of the Council of Education in Public Health (CEPH), which oversees institutional accreditation in public health, and is a member of the board of directors for the National Board of Public Health Examiners (NBPHE), which oversees the certification process of professionals in public health. He is the 2013 commencement speaker at the Loma Linda School of Public Health. In the international arena, he has worked extensively with public health programs in Africa, Asia, and Europe including playing a key role in the launch of the BRAC School of Public Health in Bangladesh. He is currently engaged in the Teaching to Transform Global Health Initiative supported by the Medtronic Foundation.
Dr. Lapp received a BS degree in sociology from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. He earned both a MA and PhD in sociology at the Syracuse University Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. He also earned a MA in television, radio and film at the Syracuse University Newhouse School of Communications.
