About Us

  • Who We Are
  • Executive Board

The Harvard Arab Alumni Association (“HAAA”) was founded in 2001 with two primary objectives. First, HAAA seeks to promote and strengthen the “Arab voice” at Harvard, an objective that was developed in response to the historical under-representation of the Arab world at Harvard University – be it within the student body, the curriculum, the faculty or the research priorities. The second objective of HAAA is to build a strong network among Harvard alumni with an interest in the Arab world, recognizing that the Harvard Arab alumni community could achieve a profound impact in the Arab world when joining forces across diverse geographies as well as educational and professional backgrounds.

Today, the Harvard Arab Alumni Association reaches over 4,000 alumni and friends and supports a number of charities, scholarship funds and initiatives throughout the Arab world, including Project Harvard Admissions to promote the admission of more Arab students at Harvard and the HAAA Scholarship Fund, the first and only alumni-led scholarship fund at Harvard. In 2010, on account of our efforts, the Harvard President recognized us as the best Harvard alumni association.
