In Harvard Can We Trust?

Rebuilding trust was a key topic at the meeting last week between the Harvard Allston Work Team (faculty appointed by President Faust) and the Harvard Allston Task Force (Allston & Brighton residents & business owners appointed by Mayor Menino). If you are interested in a discussion of trust, where it comes from, and how to create it, this Opinionator conversation between David Brooks and Dick Cavett is a good read. Brooks's definition below seems like a pretty good one with some relevance to the Harvard/Allston relationship.
