Dwight Fee, Ph.D.
Dwight Fee works with students in Greenough, Hurlbut, Pennypacker, and Wigglesworth dorms. After receiving his Ph.D. in sociology at the University of California-Santa Barbara, he taught at Vassar and Middlebury College and then joined the Harvard College Writing Program (Expos) in 2012. His work and teaching in sociology has focused on social psychology, identities and inequalities, and mental health. In Expos, he enjoyed working on pedagogical innovations that targeted student engagement and transformative learning through multimodal approaches to writing. In collaboration with the Bok Center for Teaching and Learning, the students in his Expos 20 course, “Social Worlds of Friendship at Harvard,” created an archive of video testimonials aimed at expanding the dialogue about friendship, difference, and community at Harvard. He has also served as the Faculty Director of the First-Year International Program (FIP). He loves helping students transition to Harvard and feels privileged to work with so many wonderful students and colleagues within the context of the first-year experience. He is a big animal person, an avid gardener, and a fan of all the Boston sports teams.
