Get Involved

Are you looking for ways to get involved with the Harvard Chan Alumni Community?

Are you a first time volunteer?

Below are some ways to get involved as an alumni volunteer

Serve on a Harvard Chan Alumni Association Committee. Any alumna/us can serve on one of several alumni association committees. You don’t need to be an officer or be elected to serve on a committee. The 2016-2017 committees include:

  • Alumni Weekend Committee
  • Nominations Committee
  • Awards Committee
  • Global Alumni Network Committee (GANC)
  • Professional Development Committee
  • Career Advancement Committee

Serve as a Global Alumni Connector. Whether you live in the U.S. or internationally, you can serve as a Global Alumni Connector. Connectors serve as the Harvard Chan contact in the respective city or country and may plan events for alumni in the area.

Serve as an Admissions Ambassador. Admissions Ambassadors represent the School in a number of ways, from speaking with prospective students, working at graduate school fairs and information sessions, hosting an Admitted Student Reception, to attending the Admissions Campus Visit Day, or helping with other recruitment and admitted student activities.

Join a Harvard Chan City Chapter. Alumni in New York City, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Atlanta, or Seattle can join the local Harvard Chan chapter. Or you may want to start a Harvard Chan chapter in your area.

Serve as a Harvard Club Affiliate. There are Harvard Clubs in just about every city around the world. Where there are no Harvard Chan Chapters, a Harvard Club Affiliate represents Harvard Chan by serving as a member of the club board and helps plan programs with an eye toward public health.

Serve as a Harvard Chan 10 Captain. Harvard Chan 10 captains represent classes that graduated within the last 10 years. Harvard Chan 10 captains help organize social events in their area. Captains are also a member of the local Harvard Chan chapter, if applicable.

Serve as HAA Appointed Director. HAA Appointed Directors represent each graduate school within the Harvard Alumni Association and serve on an HAA committee. One Appointed Director is chosen each year and serves for two years.

Work on a special project. Is there a special initiative or project you want to work on? Alumni can work with the Office for Alumni Affairs and Career Advancement on a special project that serves the wider alumni community.
