From the President...
Dear Harvard Club of Dallas Community:
Greetings from the Harvard Club of Dallas! We invite you to join our community for the 2020-21 year.
What is the Harvard Club of Dallas?
Our Club is for all Harvard University alumni, parents, students and associates in the North Texas area. This includes all alumni of degree-granting programs (undergraduate, graduate and extension school); individuals who have studied or taken a course at Harvard or taught or served on a board or Visiting Committee at Harvard, as well as parents of current and past students and spouses of alumni. The club is a wonderful way to connect with area alumni, to learn more about the university, and to expand your Harvard relationships.
The mission of Harvard Club of Dallas is to promote education, lifelong learning, and community service in North Texas and to foster fellowship among the Harvard community. I’m going to try and break down the various facets of this mission statement applying to the current situation.
Harvard Club of Dallas is one of the top vibrant Harvard Alumni Clubs in the country. This is made possible by the work, commitment and support of its volunteer leaders, sponsors and member community. Our Club organized numerous exciting events in the fall of last year and early spring this year. When COVID-19 hit, we pivoted to online events including well-attended virtual presentations and social mixers. We are planning to have a similar line-up of exciting events for the upcoming Club year that includes eminent speakers, social mixers, networking and mentorship programs, and Shared Interest Group activities either virtual or in-person as the health situation allows. Come relive those incredible days you remember from Harvard. Please join us!
Membership dues pays towards the wonderful programs and the philanthropic activities of the Club. If you are an active member, thank you for your valuable contributions. We request you to consider renewing your membership for the upcoming year. If you are not a member, we request you to consider becoming one.

We also send email newsletters – if you have not seen these regular communications, please be sure those communications are making it to your inbox instead of your spam folder: we don’t want you to miss out on awesome programs and opportunities!
Become More Involved
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 one to two 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 pursuing a public service internship in the North Texas region. Our Talent.Service.Impact. program helps connect members to local non-profits seeking skilled volunteers and board members. Your support goes a long way in supporting these philanthropic activities. Donations can be made on the Harvard Club of Dallas website using the link here 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. We invite you to join our community for the 2020-21 Club year.
