Stephen Goldsmith

Daniel Paul Professor of Government Kennedy School of Government
Harvard University

Stephen Goldsmith is the Daniel Paul Professor of Government and the Director of the Innovations in American Government Program at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. He is also Chairman of the Corporation for National and Community Service. He previously served as Special Advisor to President Bush on faith-based and not for profit initiatives and as chief domestic policy advisor to the 2000 Bush for President campaign.

While serving two terms as Mayor of Indianapolis, Goldsmith earned a national reputation for innovations in government. As Mayor of America’s 12th largest city, he reduced government spending, cut the city’s bureaucracy, held the line on taxes, eliminated counter-productive regulations, and identified more than $400 million in savings. He reinvested the savings by putting more police officers on the street and implemented a $1.3 billion infrastructure improvement program called Building Better Neighborhoods. His neighborhood empowerment initiatives involved hundreds of community and faith based partnerships in the widely acclaimed Front Porch Alliance.

Prior to his two terms as Mayor, Goldsmith was Marion County District Attorney for 13 years.
