As the director of student services, Danielle Farrell is the go-to person for GSAS students. Danielle assists students having personal or academic difficulties to navigate and connect with GSAS, Harvard, and local resources. Danielle provides advice and ongoing support, and makes referrals to other services as necessary. Students may make appointments by phone, email, or online.

She also serves as one of the two Title IX resource coordinators in GSAS, meeting individually with students who have questions, concerns, or disclosures about sexual and gender-based harassment. She helps connect students to suitable University resources, and when appropriate, works with University and School offices to request interim measures. Additionally, she and Title IX Resource Coordinator Seth Avakian provide Title IX trainings in academic departments.
