Why should you vote?
The Board of Overseers is one of Harvard’s two governing boards along with the President and Fellows, also known as the Corporation. Harvard Overseers play an integral role in the governance of the University. The HAA Board of Directors is an advisory board that empowers volunteers to strengthen the Harvard alumni community. Voting in these elections is an important way to have a voice in Harvard’s future. Thank you in advance for taking the time to participate this spring.
