Lambert will become dean of Harvard’s continuing education when he assumes the new role April 29, according to a posting Saturday on his LinkedIn account.
Lambert, an MIT graduate with a master’s from the Sloan School of Management, had earlier served as CSU’s associate vice president for economic development, in a job he assumed in 2005. He was previously director of CSU’s Center for Entrepreneurship.
In that role, Lambert was charged with helping to build CSU’s “superclusters” model, which includes biomedicine and information science and technology.
According to his LinkedIn account, CSU OnlinePlus, the university’s distance-learning unit, has grown more than 100 percent in the past four years serving students nationally. “Last year we were proud to serve over 10,000 students,” Lambert wrote.
