WHAT IS HARVARD FORWARD?

The 2020 Harvard election is over.

Join our mailing list to find out what comes next for Harvard Forward.

We're a campaign created by concerned alumni. We're working to elect five candidates to the Harvard Board of Overseers on a platform that pushes Harvard to live up to the University's ideals. This includes:

1.

Becoming a climate leader through divesting from fossil fuels, increasing climate education and research, and on campus sustainability initiatives. 

2.

Making our governance more inclusive by increasing representation of recent alumni and connecting with current students.

3.

Aligning our investments with our values by creating more transparent and robust Socially Responsible Investment Guidelines.

WHO
Any Harvard/Radcliffe degree holder from Harvard’s 12 schools.*

DID YOU KNOW?

-

The current Overseers, on average, graduated from Harvard almost thirty years ago. Last year, less than 13% of eligible voters participated in the election.  

-

Over 1,100 institutions around the world have committed to divestment from fossil fuels, representing $12 trillion in assets. Harvard isn't one of them.

-

Many Harvard alumni, including VP Al Gore, Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, Bill McKibben, and U.S. Representative Andy Levin, support Harvard Forward.
