CNN Senior Political Analyst and Harvard Kennedy School Professor and Director

David Gergen is a professor of public service and co-director of the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School, positions he has held for the past decade. He also serves as a senior political analyst for CNN. David has served as a White House adviser to four U.S. presidents of both parties: Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Clinton. He wrote about those experiences in his New York Times best-seller, Eyewitness to Power: The Essence of Leadership, Nixon to Clinton (Simon & Schuster, 2001).

David's work as co-director of the Center for Public Leadership has enabled him to work closely with a rising generation of younger leaders, especially social entrepreneurs, military veterans and Young Global Leaders chosen by the World Economic Forum. Through the generosity of outside donors, including Les and Abigail Wexner, the Center provides scholarships to over 100 students a year, preparing them to serve as leaders for the common good. The Center also promotes scholarship at the frontiers of leadership studies.

In the 1980s, David began a career in journalism. Starting with the MacNeil-Lehrer NewsHour in 1984, he has been a regular commentator on public affairs for over 30 years. Twice he has been a member of election coverage teams that won Peabody awards and he has contributed to two Emmy award-winning political analysis teams. In the late 1980s, he was chief editor of U.S. News & World Report, working with publisher Mort Zuckerman to achieve record gains in circulation and advertising. David has been active on several non-profit boards. Among his current boards are Teach for America, City Year, the Schwab Foundation, the Mission Continues and Morgan Stanley's Institute for Sustainable Investing. He previously served on the boards of both Yale and Duke Universities. He also chairs the advisory board for the School of Law at Elon University.

A native of North Carolina, David is a member of the D.C. Bar, a veteran of the U.S. Navy, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He is an honors graduate of Yale and the Harvard Law School. He has been awarded 26 honorary degrees.
