Resident Dean

Michael Uy

Resident Dean

Hi Dunster! As your Resident Dean, I am entrusted with your academic success and personal wellbeing. I represent Dunster students on the College Ad Board and I help you with any petitions or requests that you file. I am a Lecturer and the Associate Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Music Department and I teach courses on the sociology of music, arts philanthropy, and the intro course "Bach to Beyoncé." I am more than happy to meet with you to talk about your academic goals, professional dreams, personal aspirations, or anything else! Outside of Harvard, I enjoy indoor rock climbing, coxing the MIT Rowing Club, running stadiums, and eating copious amounts of food. I got my BA from UC Berkeley in Music and Political Economy, my MPhil from Merton College, Oxford University, and my PhD from Harvard in Historical Musicology. As a scholar myself, you can find me working and writing in Dunster’s Dining Hall [well, that was before Covid19, but hopefully you get the idea!]. I also recently wrote and published a book, Ask the Experts: How Ford, Rockefeller, and the NEA Changed American Music (Oxford University Press, 2020)! My office is an inclusive space and is open to students. Please come and say hello! Preferred gender pronouns: he, him, his.
