Alumni Weekend banner

We are bringing campus directly to you! Join the HEAA community from around the world as we come together virtually for an educational and social reunion. Virtual Alumni Weekend incorporates your favorite events, including the Saturday Symposium and Keynote Faculty Presentation: The Post Pandemic Designs: Understanding the Great Remobilization with Mark Esposito, PhD. See the full schedule of events below. We look forward to seeing you virtually in June!

Submit Your Saturday Symposium Proposal

Are you working on something that is cutting edge, high impact and/or changing the face of communities around the country or the world? Many Harvard Extension School alumni and graduate certificate holders like yourself are doing amazing things and we want to hear about it to foster conversation and enable solutions! Think big impact ideas or programs, not self-promotion or product placement.

The Symposium is a platform for you to present your project – whether it’s part of your professional or personal life. Each 15-minute talk will be followed by time for a 15 minute Q&A. The deadline to submit Saturday Symposium proposals was May 30, 2021.
