Speakers Bureau provides Harvard alumni communities the opportunity to connect to the intellectual riches of the University through faculty speakers.
Shared Interest Groups & International Clubs
Building upon the collaborative, cohort-based remote model, international club and SIG cohorts may request one faculty speaker per academic year to address their communities remotely for a shared virtual event. HAA Directors for Clubs and SIGs are responsible for submitting virtual speaker requests on behalf of their cohort and for coordinating the creation, logistics, marketing, and registration for the event with the club/SIG leaders in the cohort.
United States & Canadian Clubs
Individual clubs within the United States or Canada, may request a faculty speaker to address them in-person. Club presidents or their designees are responsible for coordinating these requests and managing the logistics of the events.
- Please note clubs hosting faculty in-person are responsible for the speaker's hotel accommodations. The HAA is responsible for the speaker's travel and incidentals.
Faculty Catalog & Logistics
As in years past, the HAA will manage faculty speaker invitations, confirmations, and briefings. Please note that faculty speakers agree to participate in the program for the academic year – late summer requests are unlikely to be scheduled. Information on participating faculty members can be found in the Speakers Bureau catalog. The deadline for AY23-24 speaker request is Saturday, September 30, 2023. All requests must be submitted via the Speakers Bureau request form.
