2021 Shared Interest Group Meet-Ups

Just like the student organizations you may have engaged with in College, Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) connect you with fellow alumni from all over the globe who share your interests, experiences, cultures, professions, or avocations. And during Reunions 2021, several SIGs are hosting virtual meet-ups exclusively for alumni in reunion and Crimson Society members.

This year’s SIG meet-ups will be held throughout the day of Wednesday, June 2. They will provide an opportunity to engage with fellow alumni and current SIG members. Below is a list of the 2021 SIG meet-up events. Please note, some do require advance registration, so make sure to check out the corresponding information for each event.

For more information about HAA SIGs and a full listing of organizations, please visit the SIG Directory.
