Many Harvard Extension School alumni like yourself are doing amazing things and we want to hear about it to foster dialog and collaboration among alumni. We invite you to submit an application to participate in the annual Alumni Symposium, taking place on campus during Alumni Weekend, on May 20th, and live-streamed globally. The Symposium is a great platform for alumni to gain exposure and an opportunity to represent HES. Submit your proposal by April 30th. Those selected to present will be notified by May 5th.
