Connecting with alumni by region, policy area, class year, or leadership role provides valuable opportunities to continue learning and building relationships beyond the Kennedy School. The Alumni Relations Office organizes a variety of ways to get involved. To learn more, please contact us.
Alumni Ambassadors are representatives who live in an area with fewer than 100 HKS alumni. They plan events and communications for their region and work to engage HKS alumni with each other and the School.
HKS degree-program and executive education alumni are represented by an elected board that comprises 22 volunteer members. These volunteers work to strengthen connections among HKS alumni across the globe by supporting alumni, current students, and the School. Members, who meet twice a year in Cambridge, serve four-year terms. Board committees typically focus on alumni networks, Reunions, alumni awards, elections, communications, and career advancement.
The Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) Board of Directors is an advisory board that guides community-building among alumni. The HAA’s Board of Directors primarily focuses on developing volunteer leadership and increasing and deepening alumni engagement through an array of programs that support alumni communities worldwide.
Help plan your Reunion by participating on your class’s Reunion Committee. Reach out to your classmates to encourage them to attend Reunion, organize class-specific events such as meals or outings, and participate in fundraising for your class gift.
Participation Counts: David Rosenberg MC/MPA 1986
“You can be as involved as you want to be. Talk to prospective students. Help recent grads make a connection. Have dinner with classmates and other local HKS alumni—find their names in the HKS Alumni Directory—it doesn’t have to be a formal thing. What is important is for alumni to participate in whatever way and level their circumstances and priorities allow."
