Dr. Lapp is Associate Dean for Strategic Educational Initiatives and a member of the faculty at the Harvard School of Public Health. He is considered "one of most nationally respected thinkers about public health education" as recently noted by Dean Randy Wykoff, East Tennessee State University College of Public Health. Dr. Lapp joined Harvard University in 2011 from Columbia University where he capped off a ten-year career there by co-leading the transformation of the MPH degree. At Harvard he is directing the "Roadmap to 2013," an educational strategy and implementation process that will guide the next century in teaching and learning at the Harvard School of Public Health and define the future direction of higher education in public health. He also serves as the course director for Foundations in Public Health, the School’s innovative, case-based approach to teaching core public health knowledge. At the University level, he is the inaugural co-chair of the "Teaching and Learning Consortium" a cross-school effort to guide the future of education at Harvard. At the national level, he provides leadership roles on national committees of the Association of Schools of Public Health including the "Framing the Future: The Second 100 Years of Education for Public Health" and the "Leadership Group on Undergraduate Public Health." Among his accomplishment in global public health education is playing a central role in the development and launching of the first school of public health in Bangladesh, the James P. Grant School of Public Health. In 2011 he was selected to a three year-term as on the CEPH Councilor (10 member national board). He also served as an accreditation site visitor for the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) having participated in the re-accreditation of Boston University, Michigan University, Ohio State University, Tulane University, and Yale University.

Dr. Lapp holds PhD and MA degrees in Sociology from Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs along with a MA degree in Television, Radio and Film from the Newhouse School of Public Communications.
