From the President...
Dear Harvard Alums, Students, and Parents:
Greetings from the Harvard Club of Dallas! We invite you to join our community for the 2016-17 year. We continue to build off the momentum from our club’s incredible 100th anniversary and are looking forward to an even greater year with more varied events and opportunities to network and contribute to our community.
What is the Harvard Club of Dallas?
Our club is the alumni organization for all of Harvard University whether it is the Law School, College, School of Education, Business School, Medical School, Kennedy School or any of the other degree-granting programs of the University. We also sincerely welcome membership from students, parents, spouses and anyone who has taken a course at Harvard. The club is a wonderful way to connect with area alumni, to learn more about the university, and to expand your Harvard relationships.
An Exciting Upcoming Year
We are in the process of planning a line-up of eminent lunch speakers as well as friendly social gatherings, stimulating speakers and panels, special events, networking programs, and Shared Interest Groups (also known as SIG’s). We look forward to launching new programs and SIG’s as well, such as Food and Wine SIG. Come relive those incredible discussions you remember from Harvard!

We welcome anyone who wants to become more involved by helping to organize programs, creating a Shared Interest Group or hosting events. Please let any of the club leadership know if you would like to become more involved!
We are dedicated to helping current and prospective Harvard students. The Schools Committee interviews applicants to the college and provides an important interface with students in our community. The Nash Flores Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to 1-2 deserving Harvard undergraduates from the North Texas region. The Betsey Bradley and Hal Urschel M.D. Community Service Fund provides financial assistance to a Harvard undergraduate pursing a public service internship in the North Texas region. Donations can be made on the Harvard Club of Dallas website or by check. Click on the Philanthropy link on the club home page for more information.
There is an engaging and vibrant Harvard community in North Texas! Harvard unites us, and our club gives us an opportunity to be together. Our goal is to make the club meaningful and enjoyable for you. We would like to thank you in advance for supporting the club.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
