Ways to Engage
As SEAS has continued to fulfill its role as a school, our alumni have become increasingly engaged and energized by our mission to educate and inspire concentrators and non-concentrators alike and to connect what we do with the wider world.
In May 2010, SEAS revived the alumni reception series known as Networks.
The event was convened by six dedicated SEAS alumni: J. Christopher Flowers, Margo Seltzer, Christopher Thorpe, Harry Lewis, Mike Pascucci, and Susie Case.
Attracting over 100 people, the event gave Harvard and SEAS affiliates the chance to mingle and catch up as well as “relive” their classroom days with a lecture by Stuart Shieber on open scholarly access.
Stay tuned for details about future Networks events.
Dean Murray invited young alumni back to campus to speak to the SEAS student community.
Highlights included discussions with Sam Yagan ’99 (OKCupid); Raj Bhattacharyya ’96 (Deutsche-Bank) and Alfred Spector ’76 (Google).
If you would like to come to campus and meet current students, please let Dean Cherry A. Murray know.
