Welcome to the Harvard Club of Cincinnati!
Since 1869, we have been a home for those affiliated with Harvard University who live in the Greater Cincinnati area. Membership is open to all Harvard University alumni, HAA associate members, honorary degree recipients, and current/former faculty, fellows, and residents. Graduates from the last three years can join for free by contacting our treasurer and membership chair, Katie Nappi at firstname.lastname@example.org. Current undergraduates and their parents are invited to attend our events, as well as any alumni from nearby cities or who are just passing through.
Many of our events are designated "All-Ivy" which means open to the other Ivy League / MIT / 7 Sister schools, so if you are from one of those schools, we invite you to come and join us. Please go to “Contact Us” with any specific questions.
The mission of the Harvard Club of Cincinnati is to provide a way for local Alumni and current students of all the parts of the University – and their families – to come together. We work to foster friendship, drive intellectual stimulation, build relationships, and give service to the University and the Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky community.
We strive to provide a variety of experience for our members at every age and every stage of life, including current students and recent graduates, young professionals, families, empty nesters and retirees.
This year we celebrate our 150th year! There aren’t many Clubs as old as ours, and among Clubs our size, we’re among the most active and organized.
This is all because of the vitality and energy of you – the Alumni of the region.
To keep us going for the next 150 years, we have three pillars that drive Club success:
- A strong Board to plan and organize events. Our Board is dedicated and diverse, with each Director contributing to the vitality of the Harvard Club.
- An active, diverse, and growing membership. It’s YOUR club, so please consider membership! And if you are already a member, thank you for your annual support! Your dues allow the Board to set an annual budget, expand communications, subsidize key events like the Annual Dinner, to develop new events every year, and support extensions of the Club, like the Cincy Ivy Young Alumni.
We are always interested in hearing what you want from the Club, and any and all ideas for improving the experience are welcome.
- Fiscal stewardship to contain costs, with a focus on making events “break-even.” Each of us pays dues annually based on our individual membership date, so you have the full benefit of your year’s dues and budget stability.
Additionally, we have opportunities for Alumni and local businesses to become “Patron Sponsors” of major events, enhancing the quality of the experiences. If you are interested in becoming a Patron Sponsor, please contact me directly.
Harvard has always been more than just four years of instruction. It’s a lifelong set of friendships. It’s the exchange of ideas and the challenging of thoughts with people who are wonderfully different from you. It’s the shared commitment and passion to growth, change, and above all, Truth.
We want the Harvard Club of Cincinnati to reflect your passion, dynamism, and diversity. And most of all, we want you to derive enjoyment and meaning from interacting with your fellow Alumni.
If you aren’t a member, please join – we want to meet you! And if you are a member, on behalf of the Board we want to thank you – and ask you to renew your membership. And I personally invite you to contact me if there’s anything at all you want to discuss.
Come join us in building your Club!
