fbpx Reunion | Harvard Kennedy School

Harvard University has made the difficult decision to postpone all of the upcoming on-campus Commencement and reunion activities—including the Kennedy School Reunion planned for May 15–17, 2020. While we were looking forward eagerly to welcoming you and your classmates back to campus, your health and wellbeing are our top priority.

We have worked with your class committees and are excited to offer virtual programming during your reunion week. Please see the schedule below for more details. 

More information about rescheduling an in-person reunion will be forthcoming.
