David M. Rubenstein, ’73, to Step Down from Harvard Corporation

Rubenstein to step down from Harvard Corporation

David M. Rubenstein plans to step down from the Harvard Corporation on June 30, after a six-year term that began in 2017. A widely experienced trustee for an array of educational and cultural institutions, Rubenstein was elected last year to become chair of the University of Chicago’s board of trustees.

Rubenstein is and will remain the founding chair of Harvard’s Global Advisory Council, and is one of the University’s most active volunteer leaders. A prominent figure in finance and philanthropy, he is co-founder and co-chair of the Carlyle Group, a global investment firm based in Washington, D.C.

“My time on the Corporation has been a wonderful and memorable chapter of my engagement with Harvard,” Rubenstein said. “Working with this group of smart, dedicated colleagues to advance the University’s essential mission has been both an education and a pleasure. I look forward to continuing my relationship with Harvard in other ways, and to helping support the University’s work at the leading edge of research, education, and opportunity.”
