Richard made a very profound impact on my life. As a visiting undergraduate student at Harvard, I took his Social Psychology of Organizations class, which first inspired my passion for using social science to study how people organize. He was the kind of academic that all of us should aspire to be: passionate about his research, dedicated to teaching and developing his students (both grad and undergrad), and truly believing that the world can be made a better place through rigorous and compassionate social science research. Thank you for everything, Professor Hackman! You will be missed!
